Course 7 of NHPT
Mindset Matters: Graphing Linear Equations
“Mindset Matters” is about how the points in one’s life, a person’s mindset, and what the individual desires to be despite his or her circumstances all come together as factors that determine one’s identity and path in life. See who is headed to higher places and who will fall short of reaching the top!
Course Skill Sets, Objectives, and Essential Questions
Skill Set 1
Equations in Two Variables
To determine points of a given linear equation
How can you find the x-coordinate of a point given its y-value, and how can you find the y-coordinate of a point given its x-value?
Skill Set 2
X– and Y-Intercepts
To graph lines using x– and y-intercepts
Why do x- and y-intercepts contain the number 0?
Skill Set 3
Slope and Rate of Change
To identify slope from an equation, table, and graph
How are points used to determine slope, and how is slope used to determine the direction of a line?
Skill Set 4
To graph lines given equations in slope-intercept form
What information is given by an equation in slope-intercept form, and how can that information be used to graph a line?
