The concept of slope is a mystery to many students. Building a foundation for understanding slope begins with establishing concrete knowledge of rates, ratios, proportional relationships, and similarity. By introducing slope as a rate, particularly a unit rate, the real meaning and relevance of slope emerge. This session examines these foundations to deepen participants’ understanding of slope and empowers them to support a coherent transition from middle school to high school mathematics.



Areas of focus

During this one-hour webinar, the following questions will be answered:

  • What are the foundations that lead to a concrete understanding of slope?
  • What are rates and how do they relate to slope?
  • How can students use this skill to transition from middle to high school?
