Define and determine slope when given points (Part 2)

Unit 4: INTERPRETING AND COMPARING LINEAR FUNCTIONS
Lesson 5 of 20

Objective: SWBAT determine slope when given two points.

Big Idea: How do I find the slope when I don't have a graph? Is there a different way to find rise over run? Another good ol' classic -- the slope formula.
