y-axis up and down, location of the dependent variable on a graph
best fit line a straight line drawn on a graph that contains as many data points as possible to show a trend
slope the steepness of a straight line shown on a graph, determined using (delta)y/(delta)x
positive slope a line that shows increasing horizontal values and increasing vertical on a graph
negative slope a line shows increasing horizontal values and decreasing vertical values on a graph
constant slope a straight line on a graph that doesn't change
independent variable the manipulated variable in an experiment or lab in which the change is decided before data is collected; displayed on the x-axis of a graph
dependent variable the responding variable in an experiment or lab that is affected by the change of the independent variable displayed on the y-axis of a graph
scale the regular number increment that represents the information depicted on the axis, should start with 0 and include the maximum data value
