8th Grade Math - Slope of a Line

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

We're studying more graphs in today's free 8th grade math video on Slope of a Line. Professor Edward Burger will teach you that a slope of a line is the ratio of rise to run for any two points. Rise is the difference in the y-values of two points on a line. Run is the difference in the x-values of two points on a line. The easy way to remember slope is rise over run.

First you'll learn how to find the slope of a line and use slope to understand and draw graphs. Then, learn about the constant rate of change and its implication on the slope of a line. Finally, Professor Burger will also demonstrate a physics application of slope so you can practice this concept and acquire a stronger understanding.
