Slope of a Line from a Graph–Points Given

Here is a progressive series of free Slope Worksheets that will help your students ease into finding the slope of a line on a graph.  Each problem features a line with two points clearly graphed.  I prefer to have my students start by drawing “slope triangles” and then quickly identifying the rise and run of each line.  A slope triangle is included on the first problem of each worksheet to help your class get the hang of slope triangles.

Depending on your preference, your students can also find the slope from a graph in a variety of different ways.  Feel free to use the worksheets as a springboard into discussions about slope formulas, y-intercepts, and slope-intercept form.

Each of these free slope worksheets also has space to record the rise and run of each line.  This should help you identify where any mistakes are being made.  The first couple of sets are pretty simple, but eventually your students will be finding the slope of all sorts of lines, including horizontal and vertical lines.  They’ll also progress to the point of calculating the slope on graphs with different scales.

Each worksheets comes with answers and is available as a PDF or RTF file.  The files are printable and can be edited to suit your needs.

  1. I have just found this website. These sheets are absolutely what I was looking for my bottom Year 9 class. everything else including texts started at too hard to start with.

    Thanks
