Finding the Slope-Intercept-Form (WS 6)
Below you can see a line and its corresponding linear
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
- Where can you find the values of m and b in the
equation? Write the equation in a more general form using the
instead of their values.
- Try to explain why this general form of the equation is called "slope-intercept-form".
