### LG 1 : Understanding Slope

UNIT 2 LINEAR FUNCTIONS
LG 1 - Understanding Slope
LG 2 - Graphing Linear Equations
LG 3 - Writing Linear Equations
LG 4 - Graphing Linear Inequalities
TEST REVIEW

LEARNING GOAL :  BTEOTPESWBAT....
1. calculate the slope of a line by examining the graph.
2. calculate the slope of a line by using the slope formula.

After the test
complete both parts 1 & 2

PART 1

{if it doesnt work read this: finding slope: mathwarehouse}

2. go here, move points a and b and see how the slope changes

3. Notice in the picture above that the rise goes down (we always follow the line from left to right).  Notice that the rise is NEGATIVE. (There is no work for this step!)

4. TAKE A LOOK AT THE FOUR KINDS OF SLOPE HERE.

5. DO THIS QUICK PRACTICE- click "play the game" (you may need paper to reduce the fractions.

6.   ASSIGNMENT PART 1:COMPLETE THESE  ONLY DO THE ODD PROBLEMS!!!
FINDING SLOPE PRACTICE PROBLEMS - the answers are at the bottom. Dont cheat. Write the answers first on a piece of paper, then check them at the bottom. there is no work to show for these. YAY!
ONLY DO THE ODD PROBLEMS!!!!

DAY 2 LESSON

1. Understanding Slope 2 powerpoint (attached)
2. "think-pair share" activity at mathworksheetsgo - finding slope

3. "online activities" on same site
4. ASSIGNMENT:   worksheet attached at bottom:

PART 2

Watch video for problems #1 and #2. How to use the slope formula.
1. MATH TV - Go to:      Algebra
-> Linear equations in 2 variables
-> The slope of a line.

[If the video doesn't work, try this link for a different video. or watch a video from the extra practice section below.]

ASSIGNMENT PART 2: Do them all!
