Finding Slopes

November 6, 2014

Today we calculated the slope of the stairs by measuring the rise and run.

We next looked at how we could find the slope of the railing.

We made slope triangles with string.

Then we calculated rise divided by run to figure out the slope.

We proved that the railing and the stairs have a slope of 0.5.
