Rate of change in the examples above the slope of line corresponds to the rate of change eg in an x y graph a slope of 2 means that y increases by 2 for every increase of 1 in x the examples below show how the slope shows the rate of change using real life examples in place of just numbers. Slope is used to describe the measurement of steepness of a straight line in different situations slope may be referredt to as incline pitch or grade gradient slope is also described as a rate of change slope can be expressed in various ratio forms slope is traditionally designate by the letter m. The mathematical definition of slope is very similar to our everyday one in math slope is the ratio of the vertical and horizontal changes between two points on a surface or a line the vertical change between two points is called the rise and the horizontal change is called the runthe slope equals the rise divided by the run
