Slope

M. Pickens 2006

Objectives• To learn what slope is• To learn what a line looks like when it

has positive, negative, zero or undefined slope

• To learn how to find the slope of a graph

• To learn how to find the slope given 2 points

• To learn how to find the slope of a table

What is Slope?

Slope is the rate of change of a line

What does the line look like when…

• You have positive slope?

• You have negative slope?

• You have zero slope?

• You have NO slope?

Positive slope, + work

Negative slope, - work

Zero slope is zero fun!

NO slope.

Oh No!!!!

Slope of a Graph

• When slope is positive or negative we need to find the actual value of the slope or rate of change

• On a graph we find slope using the formula

run

riseslope

How far up or down it changes

How far left or right it changes

M. Pickens 2006

Slope of a Graph

1.First pick two points on the lineThe points need to be where the lines cross so they are integers

2. Then find the rise and run

3. Determine if the slope of the line is positive or negative

Rise = 2

Run = 3

Slope of a Graph

1.First pick two points on the lineThe points need to be where the lines cross so they are integers

2. Then find the rise and run

3. Determine if the slope of the line is positive or negative

Rise = 10

Run = 2

Slope of line through 2 points

• To find the slope of a line through 2 given points we use the formula

• For example, Find the slope of a line that goes through (-3, 5) and (2, 18)

Given two points on a line, find the slope:

1. (9, 2), (8, -7)

2. (-4, 4), (-7, 2)

3. (5, -1), (9, -4)

Slope of a Table• In a table we can use the same formula.

Pick any two pairs in the table for coordinates

Pick any two rows. If it is linear it will be the same

no matter which two rows you pick
