Definition of Slope

### Upward Slant

A positive slope on a graph has a ________

### Downward Slant

A negative slope on a graph has a __________

### Horizontal LIne

A slope of zero on a graph has a_______

### Vertical Line

An Undefined slope on a graph has a ________-

### Pick two points on the graph. Count the vertical change from one point to the other point. Then count the horizontal change. Final answer is change in y divided by change in x

Finding Slope from two points on a graph

### In the y column, find the change in two values. Then do the same in the x column. Final answer is change in y divided by change in x

Finding slope from a table

### The co-efficient

The slope of an equation

### Plot the y-intercept. The next point depends on the slope. The numerator is the vertical change and the denominator is the horizontal change.
