This is the next lesson as part of the Linear Relations section of the Year 11 General Maths (VCE Units 1 and 2) courses. I have spent time in this lesson looking at what the equation of a straight line is. It's a little different in Year 11 and Year 12 as we use it for statistics. I use a number of worked examples to go over the concepts needed to smash this part of the course.
