Use the slope formula to find the slope of a line that passes through two points.
Recognize the slope of a line as the ratio of vertical rise to the horizontal run
When a house is constructed with both sides of its roof starting at the base of the house and meeting at the top, it is called an A-frame house.
An architect who specializes in A-frame houses provides her clients with three height options (A, B, and C) and two base options (D and E).
Adjust the height and base of the house, and observe how the steepness of the roof lines change.
This video demonstrates a sample use of calculating the slope of a line.
This video provides an explanation of the concept of calculating the slope of a line.
How to use the slope formula to find the slope between two given points.

All students will be able to compare two (or more) flights of stairs to investigate which is steeper. Some students will be able to calculate the equations of the flights of stairs.
This study guide goes over the basics of graphing linear equations: slope, intercept, slope-intercept form, standard form, point-slope form, and converting between different forms of writing linear equations.
