Definition of Slope  - Concept

Concept Concept (1)

One of the most important things to understand about lines is the definition of slope. Slope is the 'steepness' of the line, also commonly known as rise over run. We can calculate slope by dividing the change in the x-value between two points over the change in the y-value. In order to understand the importance of the definition of slope, one should understand how to interpret graphs and how to write an equation.
