Slope of a Line

Students are given the graph of a line, and are asked to find the slope of the line. Students use the formula slope = rise over run to solve the problems in this lesson. Problems involve lines with positive slopes, negative slopes, slopes that must be reduced, slopes of 0 (horizontal lines), and no slopes (vertical lines). Students also learn that the variable "m" is used to represent slope.
