Calculating Slope

The Calculating Slope Concept Builder provides students practice with calculating the slope of a line on a graph. The Concept Builder includes three difficulty levels. In the Apprentice Difficulty Level, all graphs have positive slope and y-intercepts of 0. In the Master Difficulty Level, all graphs have positive slope and a non-zero y-intercept. And ini the Wizard Difficulty Level, all graphs have negative slope and a non-zero y-intercept.  Question-specific help is provided for each of the 12 situations.
