Your homework for tonight is:
- If you want more practice with graphing using intercepts, head over to Braingenie.
- If you want to play more with that Desmos activity, here it is.
- Complete the Graphing Linear Equations by Using Intercepts Pre-Assessment on the Moodle. If you can, upload an image of your graph to the Moodle. If you can't figure that out, graph in your notebook and describe your graph in words on the Moodle.
- Don't forget your graphing story blog post due next Wednesday.
- Due Next Friday (September 27th): On your Algebra Reflective Blog, create a new post called "X and Y-Intercepts." As always with our blog posts, assume you're writing your post for someone who is unfamiliar with the material and you are trying to explain it to them.
1) In your own words, describe what an x-intercept and a y-intercept is.
2) Make up a linear equation with both x and y in it, then find both the x-intercept and the y-intercept. Include the equation and the intercepts in your post, and also make sure you explain how you found the intercepts. You may want to include an image of the graph to help illustrate this (Desmos would be handy for this).
3) Finally, write a sentence (or two) telling how you are going to remember which one is the x-intercept, and which one is the y-intercept.
Again, please do quality work. This is part of your digital footprint, you want it to be good.
