This week in Math 10…
This week we learned how to find the slopes of a line.
rise is the vertical line from one point to another. When you find the rise, if you move up to will positive and if you move down from the point it will be negative.
run is the horizontal line from the point. When you find the fun, if you move right it will be a positive number and if you move left it will be negative.
Follow these steps.
If you are given the red line you want to find 2 nice points (normally these fall on crossed lines)
I know that could have been hard to see so I added grid lines. In BLUE you will see the run and the rise lines.
In GREEN are how many grid squares I cross to hit the the spot the run hits the rise. In ORANGE is the line where the rise will run into the run. Luckily these lines are 6 and 6 long.
Remember Rise over Run here is how to find your slope.
