Finding the Slope of a Line from the Slope Formula:

1. Label one point as (x1, y1)
2. The other point becomes (x2, y2)
3. Plug into the slope formula:
• We are finding the change in y-values over the change in x-values
• We sometimes hear the phrase "rise over run"
4. Simplify and use m to label the slope of the line passing through the given points

Finding the Slope of a Line from Slope-Intercept Form:

1. Solve the given equation for y
• This means y is isolated on one side of the equation
• We obtain the form: y = mx + b
2. The slope is given as m, the coefficient of x
