Ch 8: Explorations in Core Math Grade 8 - Chapter 8: Graphing Lines

About This Chapter

The Graphing Lines chapter of this Explorations in Core Math Grade 8 Companion Course aligns with the same chapter in the Explorations in Core Math textbook. These simple and fun video lessons are about five minutes long and help you learn the essential lessons about linear equations and how to calculate the slope of a line.

How It Works:

  • Find the lesson within this chapter that corresponds to what you're studying in the Graphing Lines chapter of your textbook.
  • Watch fun videos that cover the graphing and math concepts you need to learn or review.
  • Complete the quiz after watching each video lesson to test your understanding.
  • If you need additional help, rewatch the videos until you've mastered the material, or submit a question for one of our instructors.

Chapter Topics

You'll learn all of the math topics covered in the textbook chapter, including:

  • Linear equations
  • Slope of a line
  • Intercepts of a line
  • Point-slope form and slope-intercept form
  • Direct variation

Problem Solving Using Linear Regression: Steps & Examples

2. Problem Solving Using Linear Regression: Steps & Examples

Linear regression can be a powerful tool for predicting and interpreting information. Learn to use two common formulas for linear regression in this lesson.

Identifying & Extending Different Types of Patterns

3. Identifying & Extending Different Types of Patterns

In this lesson, we will look at different ways patterns present themselves in the world around us. We will take a look at how to identify patterns and how to extend patterns and use this in some real-world examples.

Linear & Nonlinear Relationships in Data Graphs

4. Linear & Nonlinear Relationships in Data Graphs

After watching this video, you will be able to explain the difference between linear and nonlinear relationships when plotting graphs. A short quiz will follow.

Linear and Nonlinear Functions

5. Linear and Nonlinear Functions

After watching this video lesson, you'll be able to tell the differences between linear and nonlinear functions. You'll also be able to identify both types just by looking at graphs.

Comparing Two Linear Functions in Different Forms

6. Comparing Two Linear Functions in Different Forms

Linear functions can be written in several different forms. The different forms make different information more accessible. This lesson will focus on how each of these forms can be used to find out certain information about the graph and the solutions of the function.
