Pick one of the following topics that has not already been covered by a classmate and explain. You can provide an example using points to help explain.

1. How do you find the distance between two points?

2. How do you find the midpoint of a segment?

3. How do you find an endpoint of a segment if you know the midpoint and the other endpoint?

4. How do you figure out the center and radius of a circle from the equation?

5. Explain how to use the vertical line test.

6. How would you find the intercepts of a function given its equation?

7. How do you find the domain and range of a function?

8. How do you find the slope of a line?

9. How do you use the slope-intercept form?

10. How do you find the equation of a line given two points?

11. Explain parallel and perpendicular lines?

12. How do you graph functions?

13. How do you test functions for symmetry and reflection?

14. How do you test functions for symmetry?

15. How do you test functions for reflection?

16. How would you find the equation of a circle given two endpoints?

17. How would you find the equation of a line given a point and the equation of a line that is parallel to that line?

18. How would you find the equation of a line given a point and the equation of a line that is perpendicular to that point?

19. How do you use the point slope form of an equation?

20. How do you find the intercepts of a line if the equation is in standard form?

21 How would you prove that three points on a coordinate axis make up the three points of a right triangle? (hint - think about perpendicular lines)

22. Is there any advantage between using the slope intercept form of an equation and a point slope form of an equation?

23. How can you determine whether an equation is linear or non-linear?

24. How can you find the equation of a line given a slope and a point?

25. How could you easily plot a line given just the slope and y intercept?
