Slope & Equations of Lines Worksheets
What does the equation of line tells you? Very often, linear equations observe a few changes in them over the course of time. These equations represent how a change occurs in something (showed on vertical axis) as time changes (represented on horizontal axis). Back when we were first graphing straight lines, we saw that the slope of a given line measures how much the value of y changes for every so much that the value of x changes. The equation of a straight line is represented by 'y = mx + b', where m is the slope of a straight line multiplied with x and b is the yintercept (the point at which the line intersects the yaxis). This form or equation that you get is called the 'slopeintercept form'. It sensibly represents the steepness and yintercept of the line  apparently defining them in a single equation. Therefore, the equation of line is clearly a representation of changes occurring in the straight line over a specified period of time.

Basic Lesson
Demonstrates how to determine the equation of a line when given the slope and a single point. Find the equation of line that has slope of 6 and passes through the point (3, 5). Use point slope form when you know a point on the line and slope is slope given.

Intermediate Lesson
Explores how to determine the equation of a line when given the slope and a yintercept. Find the equation of the line that has slope of 2 and a yintercept of 9. Use slopeintercept formula when the slope and the intercept where line crosses y axis is given.

Here's an interesting tidbit of trivia:
When Srinivasa Ramanujan, the great Indian mathematician, was ill with tuberculosis in a London hospital, his colleague G. H. Hardy went to visit him. Hardy, trying to initiate onversation, said to Ramanujan, "I came here in taxicab number 1729. That number seems dull to me which I hope isn't a bad omen."
