Slope and Intercept

Slope and Intercept Worksheet

Worksheet Description

This worksheet is designed to help students practice graphing lines by identifying the slope and y-intercept from given linear equations. Each of the four exercises provides a linear equation in slope-intercept form, y = mx + b, where m is the slope and b is the y-intercept. Students are expected to extract these values from the equation, plot the y-intercept on the graph, use the slope to find another point, and then draw the line through the coordinates. There are spaces provided for students to write down the slope (m) and y-intercept (c) for each equation before graphing.

The worksheet is structured to teach students how to interpret and graph linear equations. It focuses on the concept that the coefficient of x represents the slope and the constant term represents the y-intercept. Students learn to apply these values to plot the starting point of the line (y-intercept) and to use the slope to determine the direction and steepness of the line. By completing the worksheet, students reinforce their understanding of the relationship between algebraic equations and their graphical representations on a coordinate plane.
