This week, we begin graphing systems of simultaneous equation. Before we begin looking at the many graphs you can find out on the Web, let's review our knowledge of 2-D graphs. These graphs are known as 2-D because they have two axes. One you are familiar with is the xy-graph, which has an x axis & a y-axis.Please provide one fact about these graphs. If you do not remember them, use the book or the Internet to find terminology associated with these graphs. There are a lot of terms associated with these graphs, so please do not repeat a classmate's term. You may also discuss different types of st&ard graphs that you might have seen & should recognize. Let's see what you know about graphs.This section lists options that can be used to view responses.Collapse AllPrint ViewShow OptionsResponsesResponses are listed below in the following order: response, author & the date & time the response is posted.Sort by Response Sort by Author Sort by Date/Time* (an instructor response)Let's get started!Professor Benavides 11/8/2015 7:54:46 AMWe are going to look at three different ways to solve systems of equations. The first one that we will focus on is graphing them. When solving the system of equations, you look for the point where the two lines cross. But in order to underst& your answer you must underst& the graph. Before we begin looking at the many graphs you can find out on the Web, let's review our knowledge of 2-D graphs.

RE: Let'sget started!Courtney Casey 11/8/2015 11:07:19 AMProfessor & Class,Some different things about the xy-graph is that the x axis is the horizontal axis & the y axis is the vertical axis. All graphs generally are being used to show things such as time vs distance, weight vs. age. Graphs also have slopes, independent & dependent variables. The slope of a graph is rise over run, rise is the y axis & run is xaxis. Independent variables st& alone & are not affected by other variables that are being determined. Dependent variable is just that, dependent on other factors that arebeing measured.
RE: Let's getstarted!Thomas Baker 11/9/2015 1:44:37 PMSlope of a line is the rise over the run or the change in the y-coordinates dividedby the change o the x-coordinates. For example; the slope of the line between (3,3) & (6,9) would be 2The slope intercept form of an equation is written as y=mx+bwhere m equals the slope & b equals the y-interceptRE: Let's get started!Courtney Casey 11/9/2015 4:12:48 PM
Thomas,I really like your post to this weeks discussion. I briefly touched on the
