Lesson 2: Intercepts (linear models)

Finding the intercepts of a linear model graph. The intercepts are also interpreted in terms of the fuel consumption problem from lesson 1 where intercepts naturally arise as the moments when the tank is full and the tank is empty. The general form of a linear equation and the intercept method of graphing are also introduced in this lesson. Homework assignment follows at end of lesson.
