PERT: Graphing Linear Equations Objectives
High school students in Florida must take the PERT test while in the 11th grade to showcase their readiness for college. This test is a high school graduation requirement that also determines course placement for students. Broken into three subtests, the computer-adaptive exam gauges students' comprehension of reading, writing and math. Each subtest consists of 30 multiple-choice questions and is scored separately.
This chapter on graphing linear equations covers topics found in the math subtest. To increase your chances of success at earning this subtest's minimum cut score of 114, you can review the lessons in video or transcript form. Test your knowledge of lesson concepts by taking self-assessment quizzes and a chapter exam.
1. What is a Coordinate Plane? - Definition, Quadrants & Example
In this lesson, you'll learn what a coordinate plane is and some coordinate plane terminology. You'll also see a few examples of coordinate planes in action. Then, you can test your new knowledge with a brief quiz.
2. Plotting Points on the Coordinate Plane
If you'll be working with a graph, otherwise known as the coordinate plane, it's essential to understand how it works. This includes learning the parts of a graph, identifying points and plotting points.
3. What are Horizontal Lines? - Definition & Equations
In this lesson, we will learn about horizontal lines. What properties are unique to horizontal lines? How do you recognize the graph or equation of a horizontal line? These questions will be investigated here.
4. Graphs of Parallel and Perpendicular Lines in Linear Equations
When we deal with linear equations, we sometimes come across equations that are parallel to each other or perpendicular to each other. You will see what they look like when graphed in this video lesson.
5. Slopes and Tangents on a Graph
Hit the slopes and learn how the steepness of a line is calculated. Calculate the slopes between points and draw the tangents of curves on graphs in this lesson.
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.
7. Slope-Intercept Form: Definition & Examples
The slope-intercept form of the equation of a line is a useful form for graphing as well as for understanding the relationship between x and y. In this lesson, learn how the slope-intercept form helps you understand the equation of a line.
