1 Objective - To find the slope of a line. Slope -The rate of change that determines the direction of a line and how steep it is. Slope = vertical change horizontal change y x Slope = y x rise run Slope =m = m = = =

2 Find the slope of the line below. x y Slope = rise run Slope = m = m = = 1 4

3 Find the slope of the line below. x y Slope = rise run Slope = m =

4 Find the slope of the line below. x y Slope = rise run Slope = m = 2 3

5 Find the slope of the line below. x y Slope = rise run Slope = m = -2

6 Find the slope of the line below. x y Slope = rise run Slope = m =

7 Find the slope of the line below. x y Slope = rise run Slope = +2 m = 1 2

8 x y run rise Slope = rise run Slope Formula

9 Use the slope formula to find the slope between the given points. 1) (2, 5) (6, 9) 12 2) (-3, 7) (5, -5) 12

10 Use the slope formula to find the slope between the given points. 3) (6, 1) (-3, 4) 21 4) (3, -2) (6, 8) 12

11 Use the slope formula to find the slope between the given points. (2, -1) (2, 5) 12 (-2, 4) (3, 4) 12 y x All horizontal lines have slope = 0 All vertical lines have undefined slope zero slope no slope m = 0 m = undefined

12 Positive Slope vs. Negative Slope x y m = 0 m = undefined

13 Slope as a Rate of Change The graph below represents Joes drive to work. Describe what happens during each segment. Distance from home Time A B C D E F G H I J
