## Topic

Linear Functions

## Description

This example demonstrates the conversion of the linear equation -x + y = -1 from standard form to slope-intercept form. The process involves isolating y, resulting in y = x - 1. This transformation clearly reveals the slope and y-intercept of the line.

Linear functions are fundamental mathematical concepts that describe relationships between two variables. The examples in this collection, such as showing step-by-step transformations from standard form to slope-intercept form, help in understanding how each part of the equation affects the graph and the relationship itself.

Seeing multiple worked-out examples allows students to recognize patterns between different representations of linear functions, reinforcing their algebraic manipulation skills and deepening their understanding of the concept.

**Teacher Script:** "Let's examine how this equation changes form. Notice how we isolate y to reveal the slope and y-intercept? This process is crucial for understanding linear equations and functions. How do you think the negative constant term affects the graph? Can you think of real-world scenarios where such functions might be applicable?"
