Looking for some practice with direct variation? Watch this tutorial, and get that practice! This tutorial shows you how to take given information and turn it into a direct variation equation. Then, see how to use that equation to find the value of one of the variables.
Trying to graph a line from a given slope and a point? Think you need to find an equation first? Think again! In this tutorial, see how to use that given slope and point to graph the line.
When you're dealing with linear equations, you may be asked to find the slope of a line. That's when knowing the slope formula really comes in handy! Learn the formula to find the slope of a line by watching this tutorial.
You can't learn about linear equations without learning about slope. The slope of a line is the steepness of the line. There are many ways to think about slope. Slope is the rise over the run, the change in 'y' over the change in 'x', or the gradient of a line. Check out this tutorial to learn about slope!
Want to know what a direct variation looks like graphically? Basically, it's a straight line that goes through the origin. To get a better picture, check out this tutorial!
When you're learning about linear equations, you're bound to run into the point-slope form of a line. This form is quite useful in creating an equation of a line if you're given the slope and a point on the line. Watch this tutorial, and learn about the point-slope form of a line!
When you have a linear equation, the y-intercept is the point where the graph of the line crosses the y-axis. In this tutorial, learn about the y-intercept. Check it out!
Word problems allow you to see math in action! Take a look at this word problem involving an object's weight on Earth compared to its weight on the Moon. See how the formula for direct variation plays an important role in finding the solution. Then use that formula to see how much you would weigh on the Moon!
Ratios are proportional if they represent the same relationship. One way to see if two ratios are proportional is to write them as fractions and then reduce them. If the reduced fractions are the same, your ratios are proportional. To see this process in action, check out this tutorial!
When you're dealing with graphs, it's often important to identify the x-intercept and y-intercept. In this tutorial, you'll see how to find the x-intercept and y-intercept of a line. Take a look!
The rate of change is a rate that describes how one quantity changes in relation to another quantity. In this tutorial, practice finding the rate of change using a graph. Check it out!
Working with the graph of a line? Trying to find the equation for that graph? Just pick two points on the line and use them to find the equation. This tutorial shows you how to take two points on the graph of a line and use them to find the slope-intercept form of the line!
