A non-vertical line has a steepness, known as its slope. Given any two points on a line, the slope is equal to the difference, or change, of their y-coordinates divided by the difference, or change, of their x-coordinates. The change in y over the change in x is always the same, no matter which two points are given, and thus characterizes a line. Find out how Grandpa Lindbergh uses this computation to determine how steep of a flight path can his airplane take after an upgrade. Common Core Reference: CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.8.FA.3
