Plan and/or Tasks:


Learners should be able to work with ratios.


Slope: A number, usually in the form of a ratio, that gives the steepness of the line.


1. Read the information and examples of finding the slope between two points of a line.
2. Using the first example, redo it on another piece of paper without looking at the answer. Then, check your work.

Key Questions (Critical Thinking Questions):

Answer in your journal.
1. Define slope in your own words.
2. Give two points that would have a slope of 3/1 between them.
3. What does s slope of 0 mean? Can you give an example of a situation (two data points representing something) where the slope would be 0?
4. Is there a relationship between a slope of ¼ and one of 4/1?
