    Overview - 

    • Review of writing linear equations. 

        Estimated Time - 30 minutes

        Explanation -

    • You will use IXL to review.
    • Remember, if you get the slope incorrect, you will have to start over.
    • These problems require work on paper.  Please do not try to do them in your head!
    • In assignment #2:
      • You only need 2 ordered pairs from each table.
      • Instead of using y = mx + b, IXL wants you to use f(x) = mx + b.  Remember f(x) is called function notation.  It’s the “fancy way” to write y.

    Overview - 

    • Review of graphing linear equations.

        Estimated Time - 30 minutes

        Explanation -

    • You will use IXL to review.
    • When graphing in slope-intercept form, y = mx + b
      • Start on the b, on the y-axis.
      • Use the slope to rise and run to get at least one more point.
    • When graphing vertical and horizontal lines:
      • Vertical lines are x = #
      • Horizontal lines are y = #

    • Review of slope.

        Estimated Time - 30 minutes

        Explanation -

    • You will use IXL to review.
    • When finding slope from a graph use m = rise/run.  (left to right)
    • When finding slope from two ordered pairs use m = y2 – y1/x2 – x1
    • Slope should be written as whole numbers or fractions (not mixed numbers.
