Parallel and Perpendicular

Today we learned what Parallel and Perpindicular lines are, how they are graphed, how to graph them given an equation for a line, and how to write an equation for a perpindicular line when given only the first line.

Graphing Linear Equations

We learned how to use grapmatica and graphing calculators to graph linear equations

The Effect Of Changing The Coefficent Of X In The Equation y=x

Today in class we learnt about what happens when you change the coefficent of x in the equation: y=x. Some important equations to learn are:
1. y=mx+b
2. y-y=m(x-x)
3. Ax+By+C= 0 ; m= -A/B; b= -c/B; Ax+By=C

I will later post the video since it wasn't working at this time.
