Activity A: Steepness Get the Gizmo ready: x Be sure Show rise and run is turned on. 1. In the Gizmo, graph an example of each line described below. Then sketch each line on the axes to the right. For each line, tell how the rise and run compare. A. Has a rise of 4 and a run of 4 B. Has a rise of 4 but is flatter than the first line C. Has a rise of 4 but is steeper than the first line 2. The ratio run rise describes the steepness of a line. This ratio is called the slope of the line. A. Find the slopes of the three lines you graphed above. Show all of your work. Then write the slope next to each line in the graph above. Line A Line B Line C B. Turn on Show slope computation . In the Gizmo, graph each line from question 1 again, and check the slopes you found above. What is the relationship between the slope of a line and its steepness? 3. Experiment with a variety of lines in the Gizmo. Then answer the questions below. Be sure to talk about rise and run in your explanations. A. Which is steeper, a line with a slope of 2 or a line with a slope of 3? Explain. B. Which is steeper, a line with a slope of 2 1 or a line with a slope of 3 1 Explain. ?
