About This Chapter

Get students ready for content on slope and the rate of change with this chapter. It has lessons that are designed to make the learning process fun and engaging for students. They can apply what they've learned during the ISTEP+ Grade 7 Math test.

ISTEP+ Grade 7 Math: Slope & Rate of Change - Chapter Summary

As your students move through the lessons in this chapter, they'll expand on their knowledge of slope and the different formulas for slope for the ISTEP+ Grade 7 Math test. These topics are also covered in this chapter:

  • Rate of change and velocity
  • Slopes
  • Determining the rate of change of functions
  • An explanation of varying and constant rates of change
  • Finding the slope of a line

Videos are short, ranging from around 5-10 minutes long, and there are video tags at the bottom of each one. Using these tags lets your students quickly navigate to a certain part in a video, allowing them to revisit a particular topic quickly. Written transcripts can be read through at students' convenience. Online instructors are also on standby so students can get questions answered at any time.

What is Slope? - Definition & Formulas

1. What is Slope? - Definition & Formulas

The slope is a measure of the steepness of a line, or a section of a line, connecting two points. In this lesson, you will use several different formulas for slope and learn how those formulas relate to the steepness of a line.

Velocity and the Rate of Change

2. Velocity and the Rate of Change

Running from your little sister or just window-shopping, your speed is just a measure of how fast you move, or how your position is changing over time. In this lesson, learn about how velocity is a rate of change.

Slopes and Rate of Change

3. Slopes and Rate of Change

If you throw a ball straight up, there will be a point when it stops moving for an instant before coming back down. Consider this as we study the rate of change of human cannonballs in this lesson.

Determine the Rate of Change of a Function

4. Determine the Rate of Change of a Function

In this lesson, we will learn about the rate of change of a function with specific focus on linear and exponential functions while examining the graphs of both types of functions.

Constant & Varying Rates of Change

5. Constant & Varying Rates of Change

A rate of change measures how quickly a measured quantity is changing. In this lesson, learn about rates of change and how to tell if a rate of change is constant or varying.

How to Find and Apply The Slope of a Line

6. How to Find and Apply The Slope of a Line

In this lesson, we'll discover all about the slopes of lines. We'll learn about different types of slopes and how to find the slopes of lines. We'll use two methods: the slope formula and the slope-intercept form.
