Are there any slope values that you think would be hard to graph? Any slopes that are confusing?
No because you just do rise over run like you explained
and a fraction gives you the rise and run
Definitely cleared things up for me a little more. Thanks.
I understand a lot bette now.
I don't think so.
I love how you said CASTLE PANIC!!!
I understand more
Just like we leaned in class I fully understand
I don't know... there may be a graph at some point that I wasn't expecting... or maybe the numbers would be hard to calculate with. Great video... it really cleared things up. (By the way... I'm not completely sure but I think that one of the points on the 4th graph was in the wrong spot, but no big problem! :)
You're right Hazel. My cursor lagged a little and I didnt realize. The plot should be one lower. Great catch! Extra Credit!
this helps a lot
Cleared things up a bit, I can understand it better.
No, I think I understand it a lot better now
Sorry I was late, I had to go to a funeral.
I kinda understand it more now
what do you not understand piper maybe i can help?
Again, this video helped a lot! Quick question... when when finding intercepts on a linear line, should we estimate if the line doesn't cross an exact point or should we just solve the graph algebraically?
HAZEL~ I would say that you would estimate because unless you have a word problem to go with it, you don't know the exact value. I am pretty sure Mr.Bigsby said that in class today. I hope that helped you Hazel!!!
Thanks Emily! I do agree that it is good to estimate sometimes, but if it gives you the y value (ex: 2400), sometimes you can divide by the 1800x in F(x)=1800x. So, 2400/1800=1.33 (repeated), but I guess that in this example, it may be better to round, since 1.33 is not very exact. I think that truly it depends on the graph and values. Thanks Emily! It did help! :)
Great question Hazel. Emily is correct about how we were solving it today using the Intersection Point. And a word problem could definitely help if they gave us the value. However, in class we talked about how needing to estimate values that do not cross an exact point on the graph was a disadvantage of solving with the Intersection Point. We started to talk about how solving algebraically would be more accurate. We will start learning this skill starting Thursday!
hello this made it easier.
I am wondering how do you make an answer if you have an intersection point but, it is not exact. Would we use the algebraic method instead?How do we do the algebraic method with the quotient being a bunch of numbers?
Example: quotient pi, 3.1415... Should we just round the number?
Whoa, irrational numbers?!??! I can't think of a problem that would have an X or Y value of pi. Pi could be slope though, and it is usually rounded or placed in a calculator for more accuracy.
Julianna I'm not really sure of the answer to what you're asking but I think if the points were discrete like humans for example you would round because you can't have half of a human . But if the word problem, if there is one, is continuous then I think you would use the algebraic method.
Ooo I really like your point about needing to round your answer if it is a discrete graph. Like if we sell tickets for $5 each and our goal is to make $12.50, the intersection point would land at 2.5 tickets so we would have to round up to 3 tickets to meet our goal!
All problems can be solved both graphically and algebraically. Each has its advantages and disadvantages which we will talk about.
Mr.Bigsby I like doing this (talking to our classmates). It helps A LOT.
Hi reading all those questions made things easier
cool video u made it soooo much more understandable by explaining soory im late
With all of ur discussions I can understand everyone point of view even u mr bigsby
Reading other people's comments and you answering them made things seem easier to understand
The comments and discussions really clear things up.
