Graphs Summary
All graphs are drawn on axes called x (horizontal) and y (vertical). Remember them this way: x is a cross: across!
The simplest graphs are numbers only. e.g. y=4 or x=2
The axes are special lines: y=0 and x=0 for the x and yaxis respectively!
Straight line graphs take the form y=±mx±c where m is the gradient and c is the yintercept.
The gradient is how steep the graph is. Negative gradients slope down.
The yintercept is where the line crosses the yaxis.
Work out how to plot graphs using 3 pairs of values for x and y.
