8th Grade Math - Graphing Linear Equations

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

By taking the time to graph an equation, you can easily determine whether the equation is linear or not. Why? A linear equation is basically an equation whose solutions fall on a line on the coordinate plane. If you graph an equation and it does not line up in a straight line, it is not a linear equation. Today's video not only covers graphing linear equations, but also rates of change and slopes. A rate of change is a ratio that compares the amount of change in a dependent variable to the amount of change in an independent variable. In today's lectures, you'll practice determining whether the rate of change is constant or variable for a data set. This can be helpful as each term in a linear equation is either a constant or the product of a constant and a single variable.

Today's free 8th grade math video covers Graphing Linear Equations. Don't forget to click the forward button directly to the left of the time stamp to move to the next lecture in the video. Watch all three lectures with Professor Edward Burger and get a solid foundation on the subject.
