Gradient of a Straight Line

Gradient of a Straight Line

Lesson going through what the gradient of a line can be described as, discussion for students, slides going through positive and negative gradient. Begins by 'counting' the difference in y coordinates, and dividing it by the difference in the x coordinates.This goes onto discovering the formula for the gradient of a straight line when given two points. Practice questions with most slides and a final challenge questions after a slide on RAG ratings of students.
