Understanding Slope and y-Intercept

What is Slope? The steepness of a line; rate of change in y (vertical) compared to change in x (horizontal), denoted as m.

What type of slope is represented above?

y- intercept: y coordinate of a point at which the relationship crosses the y-axis meaning the x coordinate is equal to zero, denoted as b in y = mx + b and the ordered pair (0, b)

Let's review slope intercept form......
