In the general form for the equation of a line, y=mx+b, m represents what?

m represents the slope of the line.


When graphing a proportional relationship such as distance over time, the slope of the graph can be interpreted as what?

The slope of the graph can be interpreted as the unit rate.


The graph shown here represents how many chips Rebcca eats per hour. The amount of chips Leila eats per hour can be represented by the equation y=15x. Who eats more chips in 3 hours?

Leila eats more chips in 3 hours.


The graph shown here represents how many water bottles Seth sold per day. The number of water bottles Hayden sold can be represented by the equation y=9x. Who sold more water bottles in 2 days?

Seth sold more water bottles in 2 days.


Glen is riding her bike at 5 miles per hour. Create a graph that shows how far she will travel over 5 hours.



What is the slope of the line you just graphed?

m=5


Write an equation for the line you just graphed.

y=5x


Write an equation for the line shown on this graph. Show how you calculated the slope.



Find the slope of this line, using similar triangles as a guide.

Slope is the ratio between rise and run (or the change in y and the change in x). Both triangles rise 2 places (y) and run 2 places (x), so the slope is 2/2 (or 1)


Write an equation for the line you just found the slope of.

y=1x4
