Linear Functions

Linear functions are the most important family of functions. They pervade our everyday lives and our work. Their graph is a line, and their general form is f(x)=mx+b where m is the slope of the function and b is the y-intercept, the value where the line crosses the y-axis. This Lab is designed to give you a picture of a linear function based on its formula. So play with it until you can picture the function from its formula and its formula from its graph.
