Ok welcome to lesson 4.  This lesson will teach you how to graph a line using the slope-intercept method.  By far this is the most common way students graph lines in algebra so you want to take good notes.  Also, pay extra attention on how we use the slope to plot a line using this method. As you work toward passing the GED you want to stay focused on building up all these math skills we study- everything is important.

Things to focus on in this lesson:

• y = mx + b  format and what m and b represent
• the steps to graph a line in y = mx + b form
• negative and positive slope

#### Graphing Lines Using Slope Intercept Method

pop quiz: a negative number x a negative number is positive?

 Good work you finished lesson 4. You should be able to: * graph a line in y = mx + b form * find the slope of a line * graph one and two variable lines The next lesson will teach you another method for graphing lines using the x and y intercepts   Lesson 5: Graphing Lines Using XY Intercept Method Lesson 1: Graphing Lines One Variable  Lesson 2: Graphing Lines Two Variables Lesson 3: Slope Of A Line Lesson 4: Graphing Lines Using Slope Intercept Method Lesson 5: Graphing Lines Using XY Intercept Method Lesson 6: Finding The Equation Of A Line y=mx + b Method Lesson 7: Finding The Equation Of A Line Point-Slope  Formula Lesson 8: Finding The Equation Of A Line Given A Point And Slope Lesson 9: Finding The Equation Of A Line Given Two Points Lesson 10: Find The Best Fitting Line/Scatter Plots Lesson 11: Linear Models/ Word Problems
