#### When we want to better understand the nature of an equation we often graph a line of the equation. Where ever that line hits the zero value of x-axis is referred to as the X intercept. Where the line touches the zero value of y-axis is referred to as Y intercept. The thing to keep in mind is that you already know the value of one of the coordinates when we are talking about intercepts. If you are look for the X intercept, the value of the x coordinate must be zero. The same holds true for the Y intercept (the y coordinate is zero). The goal of this set is to help kids work on identifying the x- and y-intercepts for given algebraic expressions, then placing those points on a graph. Students will also determine values given specific intercept points.

These worksheets demonstrate the concept of both X and Y intercepts, we concentrate most of our time on how to identify the x and y intercept and plot them on a graph.
