The goal for this packet was to introduce the student to what slope is, how to define it and the meaning behind it. The concentration was on how to calculate slope given the slope formula.
We will look at the definition of slope. How it is used/useful. How to calculate it using algebra. What different values of slope mean.
In this slide show I define what a slope is and how it can be useful. We focus on the algebra aspect of slope and how to find it using the slope formula.
