UNIT 4, LESSON 1 - LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Rate of Change and Slope

• Calculate the rate of change or slope of a linear function given information as sets of ordered pairs, a table, or a graph.

• Apply the slope formula.

Intercepts of Linear Equations

• Calculate the intercepts of a line.

• Use the intercepts to plot a line.

Graphing Equations in Slope Intercept Form

• Give the slope intercept form of a linear equation and define its parts.

• Graph a line using the slope intercept formula and derive the equations of a line from its graph.

Point Slope Form and Standard Form of Linear Equations

• Give the point slope and standard forms of linear equations and define their parts.

• Convert point slope and standard form equations into one another.

• Apply the appropriate linear equation formula to solve problems.
