Chapter 6 Lesson 3 – Slope Of A Line

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

Pop quiz:  True or False – A variable represents a number? 

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

Hello John, I am writing to thank you. During the Summer I took and passed all of my GED courses with the exception of the Math test. I found your free math course online and listened and watched all of the videos, trying to educate myself utilizing the tools and tips that you provided. I have to admit, it was very overwhelming and at times I felt as though I was being taught in a foreign language. I scheduled my re-test earlier this week and I passed. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. It took me 22 years to feel confident enough to achieve this goal and I am forever grateful to you for offering this information online. You are heaven sent! Now I can apply for better paying jobs and attend college. Thank you, thank you, thank you for helping others change their lives for the better!!” Sincerely, Alicia
