In this discussion, you will explore the concept of slope and determine how to teach someone how to find the slope of a line.
Step 1: Respond to the following:
One of your friends is struggling with the concept of slope. To help your friend with this concept, you decide to ask her to draw several lines with different slopes. So that your friend will not be confused, you will need to give her instructions for drawing each of the examples listed below without using any mathematical terms or equations.
Write out the instructions you would give your friend to complete this task and better understand the slope of a line. Avoid using mathematical terms or equations. In your instructions, ask her to draw the following:
- a line with positive slope
- a line with negative slope
- a line with an undefined slope
- a line with a slope of 0
Step 2: Then, respond to at least two other classmates' posts, comparing your concepts with theirs. Once again, use any personal experience if appropriate to help support or debate other students' posts. If differences of opinion occur, students should debate the issues and provide examples to support opinions.
