Lesson 3 is about a super important topic when learning about lines in algebra- the topic is “slope”.  The slope of a line is the angle of the line and we really need to understand the slope to graph lines and find the equation of a line.  By the way I have been talking about graphing and finding the equation of lines- these “line” equations have a mathematical name called “linear equations”.  So this chapter is really all about linear equations and slope.

Things to focus on in this lesson:

• the definition of slope
• the rise over the run
• how to find the slope given two points

 Well done you finished lesson 3 on slope.  You should be able to: * define the slope * find the slope given two points * know the difference between negative and positive slopes Now that you understand the slope we can continue to learn more about graphing lines   Lesson 4: Graphing Lines Using Slope Intercept Method Lesson 1: Graphing Lines One Variable  Lesson 2: Graphing Lines Two Variables Lesson 3: Slope Of A Line Lesson 4: Graphing Lines Using Slope Intercept Method Lesson 5: Graphing Lines Using XY Intercept Method Lesson 6: Finding The Equation Of A Line y=mx + b Method Lesson 7: Finding The Equation Of A Line Point-Slope  Formula Lesson 8: Finding The Equation Of A Line Given A Point And Slope Lesson 9: Finding The Equation Of A Line Given Two Points Lesson 10: Find The Best Fitting Line/Scatter Plots Lesson 11: Linear Models/ Word Problems Section Practice Problems Below:

# You Will Not Learn Math Without Practicing Watching The Lesson Videos Are Not Enough!

## Don’t Waste Time And Start Building The Math Skills You Need For The GED!

Taking my free GED math course is a big step to help you prepare for the GED. The course will help you learn core middle and high school math skills but you also need to do your part and practice! As such I created a workbook for this course that is designed to give students practice problems and solutions to strengthen their skills. In order to truly master math concepts you must practice a wide variety of problems. This workbook is an extremely valuable supplement that all students using GED Math Lessons should have.
