Gradient of a straight line.

Learners can use this resource to find the gradient of each line, following whole class exposition (dividing change in y by change in x). Learners can be introduced to the slope function to self assess. Learners look for the link between the gradient and coefficient of x when the equation is in the form y = mx + c. Further questioning can compare the gradients of parallel and perpendicular lines.
