## Questions

### Subject: Basic Math

300 / 15

I would go through the process of long division (going up and down the stairs of the house) to help the student solve the problem.

### Subject: Physical Science

What is Newton's first law?

Newton's first law is known as the law of inertia. Inertia tells us that an object in motion stays in motion, or an object in rest stays at rest, unless acted upon by an outside force. I would then lead into further conversation with the student about why if they were to roll a tennis ball on their floor it would come to a stop.

### Subject: Algebra

Write (2,3) (4,6) in slope-intercept form.

Slope-intercept form is using the equation y=mx + b, where y and m stay variables (letters) and m and b are replaced by numbers. You would first need to use the slope formula to find the slope (would show student how to use slope formula if needed). After you find the slope, you would substitute it in for m. You would then use one of a few methods to determine the y-intercept, or b. Then you will be able to write the equation in slope-intercept form.
