Model a Linear Relationship Between Two Quantities

1. Model a Linear Relationship Between Two Quantities

In this lesson, we will learn about modeling linear relationships by converting domain and range values into ordered pairs and then constructing a graph.

How to Find and Apply The Slope of a Line

2. How to Find and Apply The Slope of a Line

In this lesson, we'll discover all about the slopes of lines. We'll learn about different types of slopes and how to find the slopes of lines. We'll use two methods: the slope formula and the slope-intercept form.

How to Find and Apply the Intercepts of a Line

3. How to Find and Apply the Intercepts of a Line

How can you take an equation of a line and find out where it will cross the x- or y-axis? In this lesson, we'll define x-intercepts and y-intercepts and learn how to find them.

Linear Equations: Intercepts, Standard Form and Graphing

4. Linear Equations: Intercepts, Standard Form and Graphing

Do you know what to do if an equation doesn't look like y=mx+b?! If not, then this video is for you. Chances are the equation is in standard form, so we'll learn how to use standard form equations, how to graph them and why they can be helpful.

Equation of a Line Using Point-Slope Formula

5. Equation of a Line Using Point-Slope Formula

It's time for a road trip to Las Vegas, and after four hours of driving at 60 mph ... Are we there yet? Learn the point-slope form of the equation of a line to help answer this age-old question.

Problem solving using Linear Equations

6. Problem solving using Linear Equations

From sale prices to trip distances, many real life problems can be solved using linear equations. In this lesson, we'll practice translating word problems into linear equations, then solving the problems.
