Interpret The Rate of Change (Slope) and Intercepts Within The Context of Everyday Life
CC.9-12.F.LE.5 & CC.9-12.S.ID.7 -- Interpret the parameters in a linear or exponential function in terms of a context.

HS Math Interpreting Slope and y Intercept in Context.

Interpret the y-intercept and Slope of a Linear Model.

Given a Linear Model, Interpret the Meaning of the Slope and Make Predictions
In this video, a linear equation is given in slope intercept form to model the descent of the plane. The meaning of the slope is discussed and then the equation is used to answer various questions.

Calculate and Interpret the Slope of a Line Graph
