2. Consider this graph of the Cartesian Plane, also called a Coordinate Plane or XY-Plane. Imagine trying to tell a person how to draw a line on the Cartesian Plane.

3. The Equation of a Line y You only need a few facts about a line to completely describe it: ·Its y-intercept (where it crosses the y-axis) "b" · Its slope (how much it rises or falls) "m" · y = mx + b 10 8 6 4 2 x 0 -8 -4 -2 -10 -6 2 4 6 10 8 -2 -4 -6 -8 -10

4. The y-intercept y The y-intercept ("b")of a line is the point where the line intercepts the y-axis. In this case, the y-intercept of the line is +4. 10 8 6 4 This is the ordered pair (0,4). 2 x 0 -8 -4 -2 -10 -6 2 4 6 10 8 -2 -4 -6 -8 -10

13. "Steepness" and "Position" of a Line

14. Consider this... y An infinite number of lines can pass through the same location on the y-axis...they all have the same y-intercept. Examples of lines with a y-intercept of ____ are shown on this graph. What's the difference between them (other than their color)? 10 8 6 4 2 x 0 -8 -4 -2 -10 -6 2 4 6 10 8 -2 -4 -6 -8 -10

15. The Slope of a Line y The lines all have a different slope. Slope is the steepness of a line. Compare the steepness of the lines on the right. Slope can also be thought of as the rate of change. 10 8 6 4 2 x 0 -8 -4 -2 -10 -6 2 4 6 10 8 -2 -4 -6 -8 -10

16. The Slope of a Line run y The red line has a positive slope, since the line rises from left to the right. 10 rise 8 6 4 2 x 0 -8 -4 -2 -10 -6 2 4 6 10 8 -2 -4 -6 -8 -10

17. The Slope of a Line y The orange line has a negative slope, since the line falls down from left to the right. 10 8 6 rise 4 run 2 x 0 -8 -4 -2 -10 -6 2 4 6 10 8 -2 -4 -6 -8 -10

18. The Slope of a Line y 10 The purple line has a slope of zero, since it doesn't rise at all as you go from left to right on the x-axis. 8 6 4 2 x 0 -2 -8 -4 -10 -6 2 4 6 10 8 -2 -4 -6 -8 -10

19. The Slope of a Line The black line is a vertical line. It has an undefined slope, since it doesn't run at all as you go from the bottom to the top on the y-axis. rise 0 = undefined

28. Measuring the Slope of a Line While we can quickly see if the slope of a line is positive, negative or zero...we also need to determine how much slope it has...we have to measure the slope of a line.

29. Measuring the Slope of a Line The slope of the line is just the ratio of its rise over its run. The symbol for slope is "m". So the formula for slope is: rise slope = run

30. Measuring the Slope of a Line rise slope = run The slope is the same anywhere on a line, so it can be measured anywhere on the line. Keep in mind the direction: · Up (+) Down (-) · Right (+) Left (-)

31. Measuring the Slope of a Line For instance, in this case we measure the slope by using a run from x = 0 to x = +6: a run of 6. During that run, the line rises from y = 0 to y = 8: a rise of 8. rise 8 slope = m = run 6 4 m = 3

32. Measuring the Slope of a Line But we get the same result with a run from x = 0 to x = +3: a run of 3. During that run, the line rises from y = 0 to y = 4: a rise of 4. rise 4 m = slope = 3 run

33. Measuring the Slope of a Line But we can also start at x = 3 and run to x = 6 : a run of 3. During that run, the line rises from y = 3 to y = 7: a rise of 4. 4 m = 3 rise slope = run

34. Measuring the Slope of a Line But we can also start at x = -6 and run to x = 0: a run of 6. During that run, the line rises from y = -8 to y = 0: a rise of 8. 8 m = 6 rise slope = 4 run m = 3

35. Measuring the Slope of a Line How is the slope different on this coordinate plane? The line rises 8, however the run goes left 6 (negative). Therefore, it is said to have a negative slope rise slope = run 8 m = -6 -4 m = 3 *most often the negative sign is placed in the numerator
