## Let's have "fun" with functions!

*The purpose of this activity is for students to explore the properties of linear functions and how they appear on a graph. Students will also practice graphing linear functions.*

## Linear Functions with Sliders

Manipulate the linear function by using the sliders for variables

*m*and*b*. Observe the changes in the graph.How does the value of *m* affect the graph? What does *m* represent?

How does the value of *b* affect the graph? What does *b* represent?

Use the below applet to practice graphing linear functions. When the function is graphed correctly, the user will be notified immediately. Select "New Line" graph a new function.
