Using Point-Slope Form of the Equation of a Line
Instructor uses a white board to explain how to use point-slope form of a linear equation to write the equation of a line in slope-intercept form and then graph the given line. Examples include being given a point and slope and also being given two points.
Determine the Y-Intercept Given an Equation in Point-Slope Form
The instructor demonstrates how to find the y-intercept of an equation of a line that is given in point slope form. One example is modeled using a step by step approach.

Henriques: Extended Conformal Field Theories from Frobenius Algebras (Part 4)
Andre Henriques, University of Utrecht, Netherlands The idea of extending quantum field theories to manifolds of lower dimension was first proposed by Dan Freed in the nineties. In the case of conformal eld theory (CFT), we are talking of an extension of the Atiyah-Segal axioms where one replaces the bordism category of Riemann surfaces by a suitable bordism 2-category, whose objects are points, whose morphism are 1-manifolds, and whose 2-morphisms are pieces of Riemann surface. There is a beau
