1
SLOPE Objectives: Find the slope of a line given the coordinates of two points on the line Graph equations using y=mx+b form.

2
**What is Slope? Change in Y Change in X Steepness Rise Run**

Y=mx + b Amount of Slant

3
**The Graph of y = mx +b Consider the graph of y = x - 2 y**

5 4 3 2 1 -2 -3 -4 -5 y x Compare to the graph of y = ½x - 2 Compare to the graph of y=2x-2

4
**The Graph of y = mx +b Consider the graph of y = x - 2 y**

5 4 3 2 1 -2 -3 -4 -5 y x Compare to the graph of y = -1x - 2 Compare to the graph of y = -2x - 2

5
**Determining Slope Rise=1 Rise=12 Run =2 Run =4 Rise=6 Run =2 Slope=**

6
**Determining Slope Rise= 8 = -2 Rise= 0 Run = -4 1 Run = n Rise= -2**

7
Determining Slope Rise= n Run = 0 The Slope is UNDEFINED

8
**Determining Slope 5-(-6) = 11 6 2-(-4)**

Find the change in the Y-coordinates by subtracting(rise) Pick 2 points on the line (2, 5) Find the change in the X-coordinates by subtracting(run) 5-(-6) = 11 6 (-4, -6) 2-(-4) Write as a ratio (rise/run)

9
**Determining Slope Y1-Y2 Y2-Y1 m = X1-X2 X2-X1**

In general, to find the slope given two points on a line: Subtract the Y-coordinates (rise) (x1, y1) Subtract the X-coordinates (run) Write as a ratio (rise/run) (x2, y2) Y1-Y2 X1-X2 Y2-Y1 m = = X2-X1

10
**Slope Summary Positive Slope Slope = 0 Undefined Slope Negative Slope**

Negative slope is a downer Negative Slope

11
**Linear Equations (y = mx + b)**

b = y-intercept plot (0,b) to get your first point m = slope written as a fraction slope = rise/run Lean up and to the right if positive Lean down and to the right if negative
