Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, we learn how to find the slope between two points. Slope is just a ratio between the change in y values over the change in x values, and can be represented as rise over run. We can find the slope by plotting the points and calculating the change in y values over the change in x values, or by using the slope formula. Remember that slope is important in analyzing linear relationships and can tell us how steep or gradual the line is.

Lesson Description:

Finding the slope between two points

I show how to solve math problems online during live instruction in class. This is my way of providing free tutoring for the students in my class and for students anywhere in the world. Every video is a short clip that shows exactly how to solve math problems step by step. The problems are done in real time and in front of a regular classroom. These videos are intended to help you learn how to solve math problems, review how to solve a math problems, study for a test, or finish your homework. I post all of my videos on YouTube, but if you are looking for other ways to interact with me and my videos you can follow me on the following pages through My Blog, Twitter, or Facebook.
