# Slope and Rate of Change

Here’s a Microsoft Word document for the lesson plan on slope and rate of change, which includes photocopiable materials.

In this lesson plan, students learn to find the slope of a line given two points of the line, find the slope of a line given its equation, find the slopes of horizontal and vertical lines, and compare the slope of parallel and perpendicular lines.

Guided Notes on Section 3.4 Slope and Rate of Change

As you listen to the lecture, we will complete the 5 objectives below. Please fill in an example for each objective as we cover the concept.

 Part 1: Finding the slope of a line given two points. Part 2: Finding the slope of a line given its equation. Part 3: Finding the slopes of a horizontal and vertical line. Part 4: Compare the slope of parallel and perpendicular lines Part 5: Interpret slope as a rate of change Notes-to-self

 positive slope negative slope slope=0 slope is undefined formula for a parallel line formula for a perpendicular line Find the card with the slope of this line: Find the card with the y-intercept of this line: -3
