### Slope and y-intercept practice

Click to start the activity. On slides 1-3, find the rate of change or slope of the line by determining the rise (change in y) and run (change in x). Next, plot the ordered pairs on the coordinate plane. Analyze the graph so that you can describe the linear line that you see by completing the statements. If needed, use your notes to help guide you through. Complete the slides by use the or tool. On slides 5-6, determine the y-intercept on the graph and explain your reasoning. There is a helpful hint on slide 5 if you need a little bit of guidance. Preview the hint by using the :drag: tool to remove the rectangle. Complete the slides by use the or tool. On slide 7, let's combine all of your knowledge! Use the information from the graph to complete the x/y table, identify the slope of the line, and identify the y-intercept using the or tool. Finally, use the , , or tool to provide an explanation of your reasoning. On the last slide, reflect on your own understanding. Use the tool to drag the arrow on to one of the six hands to indicate which hand best describes your level of understanding. This will help me understand how you are feeling on these learning targets. Be sure to click on the when you have finished the activity.
