BASIC CONJECTURE that you should have made during class:The slope function is one-degree lower than the original function.
ADVANCED CONJECTURE that you might have made during class:The slope function is one degree lower than the original function AND stretched by the degree of the original function.
slope function = 9x8

This one does not require a conjecture - an Algebra I student could do it! This is the equation of a straight line. What is its slope?
