Slope of a Graph

Everything you need to know about slope:

  • finding slope from two points
  • positive, negative, zero, undefined
  • equations in slope intercept form
  • parallel/perpendicular

fulfills standards: F-IF

Slope Dude

This short video shows the adventure of Slope Dude, which uses the ski run of Slope Dude to demonstrate positive slope, negative slope, a slope of zero, and an undefined slope. This was the most valuable resource to me going into Algebra. Although it is silly, I still think back to this video when finding slope.

Slope Music Video

Music Video about parts of a graph, slope, and slope-intercept form. This is a fun song that will likely get stuck in the kids' heads. It covers a variety of topics. YouTube is a popular resource and the video will link to like videos.

Slopes of Parallel and Perpendicular Lines ( GMAT / GRE / CAT / Bank PO / SSC CGL)

This video shows how to identify parallel and perpendicular lines with examples. This is a clear video. The girl has a cool accent which makes it interesting.

Finding slope from graph

The slope of a line is rise over run. Learn how to calculate the slope of the line in a graph by finding the change in y and the change in x. This is basic, fundamental solution to slope. Khan academy was my saving grace in high school. It is a great tool that students can come back to to learn more.

Finding the Slope of a Line from Two Points

Finding m (slope) when given two points. Nice graphics, easy to use. Many more pages about slope.

Writing linear equations using the slope-intercept form (Algebra 1, Formulating linear equations) – Mathplanet

Where m is the slope of the line and b is the y-intercept. You can use this equation to write an equation if you know the slope and the y-intercept. Clear step-by-step instructions

Perpendicular and Parallel

This site mathematically defines parallel and perpendicular lines. Interactive - students can practice graphing. Thumbs up!

Given two points, write y=mx+b

Using two points on the same line, find the slope and the y-intercept. Then write the equation of the line in slope intercerpt form. Also, you may be asked to do only one step in this process (find m or find b). Game style, interactive questions.

Slope-Intercept Basketball Game

This slope-intercept game is a fun basketball math game that you can play online in teams, alone, or against the computer. Cool game. You answer questions but there are other aspects like, "Click the moving ball for a bonus free throw point."

Practicing Algebra 1 math: 'Standard form: graph an equation'

Fun math practice! Improve your skills with free problems in 'Standard form: graph an equation' and thousands of other practice lessons. I thought you had to sign up to access IXL, but apparently not.
