A starting point
and where
to go next
How do you write that as a Recursive Rule?
Then after that first term, write down what to do

A(0) = 1
A(n) = A(n - 1) + 2
What does Linear look like when seen on a table?
It starts where x is zero and that's no fable.
Then it goes up steadily, a constant rate of change.
Rise over run—that's not so strange!

How does a Linear Function appear on a graph?
“Linear” means a “straight line”, so easy you could laugh!
Start where x is zero, on the y-axis it lies,
Then that “rate of change” tells how steeply it will rise
rate
of change
start
A Linear Equation tells all you need to know:
The starting point, of course, then where you need to go.
“Y = mx + b” says BEGIN at “b”, that’s where,
Then “m”, the rate of change, tells which way to MOVE from there!

y = mx + b
y = slope * x + start
y = 2x + 1
A starting point... and where to go next,
