Geogebra Activity Guide 1.      Find the slope of f(x). __________________________________________________ 2.      Find the slope when g(x) is parallel to the line f(x). __________________________________________________ 3.      Find the slope when g(x) is perpendicular to the line f(x). ________________________________________________ 4.      What does slider m affect when moved? __________________________________________________ 5.      What does slider b affect when moved? __________________________________________________ 6.      When b = 0, what is true for both graphs f(x) and g(x)? __________________________________________________ 7.      Complete the following table:
 m and b f (x) = g (x) = Slope = Y-intercept = Parallel, Perpendicular, or Neither m= 0,   b=5 m =4.5, b= 0 m= -6,     b=1 m=.5,   b=10 m= 2,   b= -6 m=1,   b=0
8.      Were any functions of g(x) similar or identical to the function f(x)? If so, which one(s)? __________________________________________________
