Slope of Points

Slope of Points Worksheet

Worksheet Description

This worksheet is a graphing activity that requires students to plot lines using pairs of ordered coordinates provided. Each exercise includes two sets of coordinates, and students are tasked with plotting these points on a Cartesian coordinate system. After plotting the points, students must draw a line through them and calculate the line’s slope. There are six problems in total, each with its own pair of points and space for writing the slope.

The worksheet is teaching students how to graph linear equations from pairs of points and determine the slope of the line. It allows students to apply the slope formula, (y2) – y1) / (x2) – x1), to calculate the slope after graphing the line. This exercise not only reinforces the students’ understanding of plotting points but also solidifies the concept of slope as a measure of the steepness of a line. Through this practice, students gain a better grasp of how to translate between algebraic expressions and their corresponding graphical representations.
