8th Grade Math - Using Slopes and Intercepts

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Intercepts, the points where a line crosses either the x-axis or the y-axis, are really helpful in saying where a line is on a graph. With just those two points, you can completely determine the line. In today's free 8th grade math video, you'll learn how to do just that and more!

Ever heard of slope-intercept form? It's a popular way of expressing the formula for a straight line. It always is: y=mx+b where m represents the slope of the line, and the b represents the y-intercept. So using a little bit of algebra you can easily solve and express lines in slope-intercept form.

Over 4 lectures, Professor Burger gives you a thorough explanation of both intercepts and slope-intercept form. Work through a couple of real world examples and graph your way to understanding today's concept. We think you'll love learning from a video instead of a giant textbook!
