These activity sheets will give your students practice in correctly identifying x and y intercepts.

#### Understanding intercepts can really help your learn a bunch about an equation or inequality. In this section of sheets your students will learn how to identify the points at which a line intercepts an axis. Students will balance equations to solve for variables, and then identify the intercept points. I cannot even express how often engineers use this is make calculations that keep us safe or progressing in some way, shape, or form.

These worksheets will help your students better understand graphs, lines, axes, and intercepts. Primarily, students will be learning how to find the intercept based on an equation or a line on a graph.
