# LINR 1 | Lesson 1 | Making Connections (Graphed Lines)

## Graphed Lines

The four equations are graphed on one coordinate plane using Desmos.com and shown below to compare their linear characteristics.What patterns have graphs that are similar and how?

• The graphs for Patterns 1 and 4 have the same growth rate or slope of 2.
• The graphs for Patterns 2 and 3 are parallel. Graphs with the same slope are parallel.
• The graphs for Patterns 2 and 4 have the same y-intercept of $$(0,1)$$.
1. Name two other patterns with graphs that are parallel and name the slope.
2. Name the y-intercepts for Patterns 1, 3 and 4.

What patterns have graphs that are different and how?

• The graphs for Patterns 1 and 3 have different slopes.
1. Name the graphs for patterns that have different slopes.
2. Name the graphs for patterns that have different y-intercepts.
