# Understanding Slope and Rate of Change

#### Welcome

**Welcome:** Understanding Slope and Rate of Change

**Description:**
Slope is more than the result of plugging in x and y coordinates into a formula to find a number. The idea of describing how a line changes from point to point will carry over into Algebra 1. By the end of this webquest you will be able to answer the following questions:How do you use rise and run to find the slope?What does a positive, negative, zero, and undefined slope look like?What does slope mean when a graph represents real-world data?Once an equation is written, how can you identify slope?

**Grade Level:** 6-8

**Curriculum:** Math

**Keywords:** Graphing Linear Equations, Slope, rise and run, positive slope, negative slope, zero slope, undefined slope, rate of change
