Using Slope

Using Slope Worksheet

Worksheet Description

This worksheet is designed to teach students how to use the concept of slope to find missing coordinates and graph lines. Each problem provides a starting point and the slope of a line. Students must use the given slope and the starting coordinate to calculate the second point that lies on the line. They must then plot both points on the provided coordinate grid and draw the line that passes through them.

The worksheet is teaching students how to apply the concept of slope, which is the rate of change between any two points on a line. It reinforces the method of rise over run to determine the position of the second point from the first. This exercise also helps students understand how to draw a line when they are given only one point and the slope. By completing the worksheet, students develop their ability to visualize and graph linear relationships using slopes and coordinates.
