Standard 8.EE.6 – Use similar triangles to explain why the slope m is the same between any two distinct points on a non-vertical line in the coordinate plane; derive the equation y = mx for a line through the origin and the equation *y* = *mx* + *b* for a line intercepting the vertical axis at *b*.

Vocabulary for this standard: triangle, similar, slope, non-vertical, point, coordinate plane, origin, vertical axis
