Understand what a solution to an equation really means. Practice plugging in values for variables to see whether or not an equation is true.

Learn about intercepts and practice finding them from graphs, tables, and equations.

Learn about slope (the steepness of a line) and how to find it.

You know what horizontal and vertical lines are, but how do their equations look? And what is their slope? Learn all about it in this tutorial.

Make an introduction with the most common form of linear equations, slope-intercept form! For example, y=3x+5 is a linear equation in slope-intercept form.

Learn how to graph linear equations that are given in slope-intercept form. For example, graph y=2x+3.

Learn how to write the equation of a line (in slope-intercept form) when given the graph of the equation or two points on the line. For example, write the equation of the line that passes through the points (0,1) and (5,4).

Take an overview of the three main forms of linear equations: slope-intercept, point-slope, and standard. Learn which form is most appropriate for different uses.

Solve word problems where you need to answer a question about a real-world relationship based on its mathematical model.

Compare features of linear functions, such as slope and intercepts, where the functions are given in different forms—tables, graphs, or formulas.

Learn how to represent real-world relationships (that are described verbally) with linear graphs, equations, or functions.

Solve general word problems about real-world relationships that can be modeled by linear equations or functions.
