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.

Identify Where a Function is Linear, Increasing or Decreasing, Positive or Negative

2. Identify Where a Function is Linear, Increasing or Decreasing, Positive or Negative

Functions do all kinds of fun things. In this lesson, learn how to identify traits of functions such as linear or nonlinear, increasing or decreasing and positive or negative.

How to Find and Apply The Slope of a Line

3. 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

4. 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.

Graphing Undefined Slope, Zero Slope and More

5. Graphing Undefined Slope, Zero Slope and More

There are two special cases when it comes to slopes on the xy plane: horizontal and vertical lines. Without any more information, these examples can be pretty confusing. But with a little instruction, they end up being some of the easiest lines to graph!

Equation of a Line Using Point-Slope Formula

6. 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.
