From Stuck to Done in Nine (Minutes)

All across the U.S., algebra students have been working on slopes and linear equations in class. This means lots of homework questions about slope, plotting lines on a graph, and finding intercepts. And sometimes, it also means confusion.

Luckily, students have access to Tutor.com in their schools, libraries, or homes, where they can connect to a tutor and get one-to-one help with their homework questions.

We were reviewing recent sessions and found that a handful of students had questions about finding the slope of a line when given the points.

This particular student asked his or her tutor for help to “find the slope of the line that passes through the points (1,2)and (7,7)

Want to see how the tutor helped finding the slope? Need help with your own slope questions? Check out the session:

Within nine minutes of help, the question was answered, the  slope formula committed to memory, and the student left the following comment:

I was having difficulty on my homework, so i logged on got a tutor and he helped me alot! Now i completely understand everything! Thank you!”

What homework questions will you be asking a tutor?

    Hey! Thanks so much for this! I’m currently in college and out of the military and had to learn math all over again. I appreciate this tremendously!
