Linear Functions


Students begin this chapter with graphing linear equations by plotting key points, such as intercepts. Following a thorough discussion of slope, students use the slope-intercept form of the equation of a line to graph lines. They then learn to write equations for linear functions based on a variety of information. The chapter concludes with an introduction to correlation and lines of best fit for a scatter plot.
