Lesson Summary:

Learn how to easily find the slope between two points by using the standard slope formula in this lesson. All you need to do is identify which point is x1, which point is y1, and plug them into the formula. It doesn't matter which point you choose to be x1 or y1 because you're just finding the change in the y and x values. By following this formula, you can easily determine the slope between two points.

Lesson Description:

How to find the slope between two points using slope formula

I show how to solve math problems online during live instruction in class. This is my way of providing free tutoring for the students in my class and for students anywhere in the world. Every video is a short clip that shows exactly how to solve math problems step by step. The problems are done in real time and in front of a regular classroom. These videos are intended to help you learn how to solve math problems, review how to solve a math problems, study for a test, or finish your homework. I post all of my videos on YouTube, but if you are looking for other ways to interact with me and my videos you can follow me on the following pages through My Blog, Twitter, or Facebook.
