SLOPE of a line, according to THE SPECIALIST (+FREEBIE)

It’s time for the slope of a line!

Black diamonds, ski slopes, and yes, the slope of a line. It’s wintertime, the powdery slopes are open, and it is the perfect season to delve into a line’s slope!

It can be more fun than this! And less painful!

Watch today’s lesson with Brittany as she leads us through the snowy adventures of the slope of a line! Rise over run, steepness, and coordinate planes! Wee! In less than eleven minutes, you will know how to find…

the slope of a line!

Be on the lookout for:

  1. Real-life examples
  2. Manipulatives
  3. An easy to understand definition of slope

I’m not saying it will be perfect. There will always be mistakes along the way. Sure, learning takes time!
