This short handout addresses the concept of slope in two different ways: geometrically and analytically. Start with a brief description of slope, then use graphical representations to compare positive vs. negative slope and zero vs. undefined slope. Finish the activity by using the slope formula to compute the slope of the line passing through two points and tie the numerical value of slope with its geometric classification.
