14 14 Developmental Activity: Lecture/Activities: 1. We are going to look at the y-intercept of different linear equations. First we need know how to enter an equation into our calculator. Go through instruction page with students. (Instruction Worksheet) 2. The students will now follow along with the teacher on how to find the intercepts using the graph and table with their calculator. They will also have an instruction worksheet to follow. (Instruction Worksheet) 3. The students will now get a worksheet of a variety of linear equations, where they will need to work independently to find the x and y intercepts. (X/Y intercepts worksheet) 4. When the students finish their worksheet they will need to get into groups of 3 and compare answers. They will also need to answer the questions on the bottom of the worksheet within their groups. 5. When all the groups have completed their handout, the class will come together and each group will present an assigned problem from the worksheet using the overhead adaptor with their calculators. 6. The teacher will monitor each group while they work together and correct the students as they present their problems, if there is a mistake. 7. Once the groups present their assigned problem, the whole class will have a discussion on the written questions, on the worksheet. Closure: The students will write a paragraph into their journals about what they learned from the lesson. They will also write down at least one question that they have about the calculator or anything that they were confused about. Assessment: The teacher will collect the worksheet on finding the intercepts that the students completed in class.

15 15 (Graphing an equation) Graph the equation y = x First press the [Y=] button: 2. Now type your equation into the y1 slot: 3. Press the [Zoom] button: 4. Select Zoom Fit (It will graph your equation): You can play with the zoom features and the window button, to find an appropriate view Instruction

16 16 (Finding intercepts with a graph and table) Find the x-intercept and y- intercept of the equation y = x First graph the line: 2. To find x-intercept press [2 nd ] then [CALC] then select Zero. Make sure your curser is to the left of the x-axis and on the line and press [enter]. 3. Then move your curser so it passes the x-axis and still on the line, and select [enter]. 3. Now make a guess where you believe the line crosses the x-axis by moving your curser.

17 17 4. Finally the calculator gives us the point at which the line crosses the x-axis. The exact values that cross the x-axis. This line crosses the x-axis at point (-5, 0). 1. First graph the equation: Find the y-intercept of y = x Press [2 nd ] then press [CALC] and select Value: 3. Enter into 0 into the X= (because where the line crosses the y axis the value for x is zero. Then press [enter]. This point is where the line crosses the y-axis, which is (0, 5). This is the y-intercept point.

18 18 Find the x and y intercept point according to the table. 1. Press [2 nd ] then press [Tblset], In this situation, enter -10 for Tblstart and 1 for Tbl = 2. Press [2 nd ] then press [TABLE] 3. Now look for when x = 0 and where y = 0. These are your intercepts on the x and y axis. In this situation you can find that x-intercept = -5 and y-intercept = 5. X/Y Intercepts

19 19 Directions: With your calculator, graph each equation and find the x and y intercepts. Once you find the x and y intercepts by the graph, check it by looking at your table. Once you have finished the problems, get together with your group and discuss your answers. Then with your groups answer the questions at the bottom. Make sure that your equations are solved for y in terms of x before graphing. 1. y = 5x y = -2.5x x + 10y = y = 1/2x y = 1.95x Group work: 1. What kind of line has no y-intercept? 2. If the x-intercept of a line is positive and the y-intercept is negative, does the line slat up or down from left to right? Explain your reasoning. 3. What did you notice about the intercepts and slope in relation to the equation? Answer Key:

20 20 1. y-intercept = -15 x-intercept = 3 2. y-intercept = 6.5 x-intercept = y-intercept = 3 x-intercept = y-intercept = 1 x-intercept = y-intercept = x-intercept = What kind of line has no y-intercept? A line that does not cross the y-axis, for example the equation x = 5 2. If the x-intercept of a line is positive and the y-intercept is negative, does the line slat up or down from left to right? Explain your reasoning. Slants up from left to right as the line would cross the y- axis through the negative portion of the axis and it would cross the x-axis through the positive portion of the x-axis. 3. What did you notice about the y-intercept and the equation? That the y-intercept matches the b in the linear equation y = mx + b. The slope is the coefficient of the x-value.
