## SLOPE!

## How can i make slope into something fun?

## Reviewing what slope is...

**slope**or gradient of a line is a number that describes both the direction and the steepness of the line.

**Slope**is often denoted by the letter m. The direction of a line is either increasing, decreasing, horizontal or vertical. A line is increasing if it goes up from left to right.

## How slope is used in the world today!

## Surfing! Slope is used in surfing as the wave goes and decreases into a negative slope as you see in this picture of the man. http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/1/1e/2010_mavericks_competition.jpg | ## Kite Skiing Before launching off kite skiing takes off on a flat surface which can also be indicated as undefined or zero slope. http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/a/a9/Kite_skiing_on_ice_29_January_2011_in_Broknas,_Vaxholm,_Stockholm_closeup.jpg | ## Sergeant Floyd Monument when building the Sergeant Floyd Monument the creator had to plan out the structure. As you can see there are angles at the top going negative and positive directions of slope and on the sides its and undefined slope line. |
