# Finding the Slope of a Line

### This flyer will show you how to find the slope of a line

## What is slope?

Slope is how much a line goes up or down between two points. Imagine that you have a graph, and there are two points on it. What is the slope in between those two points? Well, that's what I'm teaching you today!

## How to find slope

There is a formula for almost everything in math, and the equation for slope is shown below.

## How to use the Equation

To use the equation, you take the two points on the graph, and put them into the equation. The y2 value is the y value of the second coordinate. The y1 value is the y value of the first coordinate. The x2 value is the x value of the second coordinate. I think you get it now. And so then you put those values into the equation and you're left with a fraction. This is the slope of the line between the two points.
