Graphing Linear Equations

Graphing Linear Equations

Author: Cecil McIntosh

The objective in this lesson is to familiarize the user with plotting points on a coordinate plane, and then graphing linear equations when given a table of values for X.

I basically go through numerous examples of how to plot various points on a coordinate plane. then I take the user through multiple examples of ploting linear equations using a table of x values. I define and demonstrate the components of a linear equation, like the slope, and y-intercept. I also give examples of positive and negatives slopes, and how to graph horizontal lines.
