Finding the SlopeInterceptForm (WS 6)
Below you can see a line and its corresponding linear
equation.
Note: Write down all your answers on a sheet of paper.
 Move slider m
and describe how the line and its equation change.
 Move slider b
and describe what happens with the line and
its equation. Explain where you can find value b in the
dynamic figure.
 Where can you find the values of m and b in the
equation? Write the equation in a more general form using the
variables m
and b
instead of their values.
 Try to explain why this general form of the equation is called "slopeinterceptform".
