Calculating the Slope of a Line (WS 4)
Below
you can see a linear equation and it's graphical representation as a
line.
Note: Write down all your answers on a sheet of paper.
 Move point M
along the line and watch the side
lengths of the slope triangle. Choose 3 different positions
for
point M
and calculate the value of the slope using your formula about
"rise" and "run" (worksheet 2).
 Repeat step (1) for at least 2 different
values of slider m.
 Describe the relation between your solutions and
the value of slider m.
