Intercept

Lyrics and Performance by Vicki Young
Melody: "LOLLIPOP song"

I - N - TERC - EPT spells intercept, intercept!

Its the place a line will cross an axis, axis.

To graph a line, it really is the fastest, fastest!

I - N - TERC - EPT, you see;

First, change to standard form,

Cover up the y term,

So x can be free!

 

I - N - TERC - EPT spells intercept, intercept!

Next, you will cover up the x term, x term,

Solve for y, youre starting to get really warm, really warm.

I - N - TERC - EPT, its true;

Plot these points where they belong,

On each axis; thats their home,

Draw the line and youre through!

 

I - N - TERC - EPT spells intercept, intercept!

Tell me: when is there only one, only one?

This should make it even more fun, more fun!

I - N - TERC - EPT, its true.

If it only has an x then the line is up and down,

With horizontals, it is true that only y is found.

And one point will do!
