Identifying and Interpreting the Intercepts

Unit 7: Lines
Lesson 7 of 10

Objective: SWBAT identify both the x- and y-intercepts of a linear function, and they will be able to interpret these intercepts in the context of a problem.

Big Idea: The idea of an x-intercept sounds like a fiction to a lot of students, because it just makes too much SENSE! Here's a chance for students to see that such common sense abounds in algebra.
