Finding The Slope of a Line Jennifer Prince 6/18/03

3
Slopes are commonly associated with mountains.

4
The slope we are studying is associated with the graph of a line.

5
Definitions of Slope The tilt or inclination of a line The ratio of vertical change to horizontal change. The change in y over the change in x

6
Tilt or Inclination

7
Vertical Change Horizontal Change This ratio is also known as Rise Run

8
How many points do you need to draw a line? One Two Three

9
Graph (3,2) and (-1,-1)

10
Draw a line through the points.

11
Now that we have our line lets find its slope. Remember we are finding the following ratio: Vertical orRise HorizontalRun

12
Vertical Change or the Rise 3

13
Horizontal Change or the Run 4 3

14
Vertical Rise Horizontal Run 3 4

15
Find the slope of the following line.

16
The slope is… 1 2

17
Find the slope of the line.

18
The slope is…. -3

19
Find the slope of these lines.

20
The slope is… Black line 3 Red Line 1 Blue Line-1/2

21
Find the slope of these lines

22
The slope is… Orange line0 Green LineUndefined

23
Lets draw a line using slope. What else do you think you need besides the slope in order to draw a line? A point!

24
If you know the slope and one point on the line you can draw the line. Example: slope is 1/3 and the point (-2,-1)

25
Now you draw a line. Given: slope is 2/3 and the point is (1,0) Given: slope is –3 and the point is (–2,4) Given: slope is 1 and the point is (2,3)

26
The graphs are…

27
Student Activity You will now receive a worksheet. You are to find the slope of a line and draw a line given the slope and a point. Turn the worksheet in when completed.

28
