What Are the Different Parts of a Graph?

1. What Are the Different Parts of a Graph?

Being able to read a graph isn't just vital for an algebra class. Graphs and charts are used everywhere! We'll take a crash course on the basic x/y plane used in algebra and the fundamental vocab you need.

The Cartesian Coordinate System: Plotting Points & Graphing Lines

2. The Cartesian Coordinate System: Plotting Points & Graphing Lines

Watch this video lesson to see how useful the Cartesian coordinate system is. Learn how points are labeled and how you can plot points and graph lines using the system.

How to Use The Midpoint Formula

3. How to Use The Midpoint Formula

The formula for the midpoint of a line segment will tell you how to find the middle of any line segment on the x, y plane. Learn about this formula and see how it is used to find the midpoint of a line segment.

How to Use The Distance Formula

4. How to Use The Distance Formula

You can't always rely on your smartphone to tell you how far you need to travel to get from point A to point B. The distance formula will tell you the distance between any two points on a graph. In this lesson, you'll learn where it comes from and how to use it!

Calculating the Slope of a Line: Point-Slope Form, Slope-Intercept Form & More

5. Calculating the Slope of a Line: Point-Slope Form, Slope-Intercept Form & More

Being able to calculate the slope of a line is a very useful skill to have. Why? Watch this video lesson to find out and learn how to find the slope when working with various equations and various lines.
