The objective of the packet is for people to learn how to find the slope in many ways and to be able to find the rate of change easily.

This packet helps people learn how to find slope in many ways such as rise / run and y2 - y1 / x2 - x1. It also helps people learn how to find the rate of change easily. It overall helps people learn specific lessons and skills of algebra.

Tutorial

Slope = rise / run

or

change of y / change of x

or

y2 - y1 / x2 - x1

/ = divided by
