Graph a Line Using Slope
This video shows how to graph a line using slope (rise over run) by plotting the points. Instructor works out the problem on a white board.
Finding the Slope of a Line from a Graph
This video clip explains how to find the slope easily and quickly when given a line and its graph. Finding the slope of a line from a graph is one of the simplest ways to calculate slope. One must remember when finding the slope of a line that a downhill line has a negative slope, and an uphill line has a positive slope. (1:22)
Find the Slope of a Line from Two Points
This video explains how to find the slope of a line from two points. This is often the most efficient way to calculate slope, and can be done with a simple formula to find rise over run. Finding the slope of a line from two points requires us to know the definition of slope and how to plot points. (1:32)
