SLOPE FROM A GRAPH Slope is a number (generally in fraction form) that tells the direction and the gradient of a line. -Direction – indicated by positive or negative sign. -Gradient – also called steepness – can be found from a graph, two points, a table and an equation. To find slope from a line: 1) Identify whether the line is positive or negative slope. 2) Identify 2 points on the line. 3) Count the rise (vertical change) between the two points. 4) Count the run (horizontal change) between the two points. 5) Write the slope as a fraction (rise over the run) and remember to put the correct sign in front. 6) Reduce the fraction if possible. REMEMBER: Slope is RISE RUN EXAMPLES: Find the slope of the line. List at least 2 points on the line in table. 1) 2) X Y X Y X Y 3) 4) X Y NAME:__________________________ INDEPENDENT PRACTICE: 1) 2) X Y X Y X Y 3) 4) X Y 5) 6) X X Y Y
