Shouldn’t you find how steep that hill is before you skate down it? In this BrainPOP movie, Tim and Moby will show you how to find the slope, or steepness, of a line! First, you’ll learn how to find a line’s slope by comparing how much it changes along each axis. You’ll discover how to calculate the changes in rise and run, and how to use those numbers to define a line’s slope. You’ll also find out how the intercept on the x- or y-axis can be plugged into the slope-intercept equation. Using that formula, you’ll be able to find the values of x or y at any point on the line. And you might think twice about taking on that half-pipe!
