SOL 
A.7d  The student will investigate and analyze function (linear and quadratic) families and their characteristics both algebraically and graphically, including x and yintercepts.

Standard Form
You are able to manipulate the line by using the sliders to move points R and S.
Notice the general form of standard form and the equation of the line in standard form. Note the variables (A,B,C) and their corresponding values.

 Points, Lines, and Equations:
Compare the graph of a linear function to its rule and to a table of its values. Change the function by dragging two points on the line. Examine how the rule and table change.
