Graphing Linear Equations

Published on 11/28/2011

Activity Overview

Students investigate how vertical transformations affect the graph and the equation of the line.

Objectives

  • Explore transformations on a line

Vocabulary

  • Slope
  • y-intercept
  • Transformation

About the Lesson

You have the option of allowing students to create the document that has the line that will be explored using transformations or use the provided TI-Nspire document. Students will investigate how vertical transformations affect the graph and the equation of the line. Students will further investigate how changing the coefficient of x changes the graph of the line.
