Exploring Slope Created by Sara Wheeler

2
Movie Clip Try to find as many examples of slope as you can in the following clip. Be prepared to share your ideas.

3
Investigation 1. a.Graph y = x, y = 2x, and y = 3x on one coordinate plane. b.How does the graph of y = kx change as k, the coefficient of x, increases?

4
Investigation (continued) 2.a. Graph y = x and y = -x on the same coordinate plane. b. How are the graphs of y = x and y= -x alike? Different?

5
xy=xy=2xy=3xy=-x 0 1 2

6
Slope Slope – the steepness of a line. Slope = rise = subtract the ys run subtract the xs
