Graphs of One-Step Linear Equations

Algebra Foundations

You will find the missing x or y value and plot the ordered pairs on the coordinate plane.

Now You Know

After completing this tutorial, you will be able to complete the following:

• Graph data points in (x, y) form in any quadrant of a coordinate grid.
• Graph the line of a linear relationship by using a table of values and the equation of the line.

Everything You'll Have Covered

In order to successfully complete this Activity Object, students should be able to solve one-step equations, basic operations on integers, plot ordered pairs on a coordinate grid and be familiar with representations of linear equations. Some of the following key vocabulary words may be more of a review for the students, but very important for this Activity Object.

The following key vocabulary terms will be used throughout this Activity Object:

Coordinate plane - a plane formed by the intersection of a horizontal number line (the x-axis) and a vertical number line (the y-axis) at their zero points (the origin). Line graph - a graph that uses line segments to show changes in data; the data usually represents a quantity changing over time.  Tutorial Details
