Great powerpoint! I never thought of teaching the slope formula that way. My kids come to me knowing rise over run - this would play right into that. THANKS!

Dear Enlightened Elephant,
I REALLY like your PowerPoint for slope intersect and look forward to using it. But I want to share a few items with you:
1. Two of the answers on the game are not correct. (The answer sheet slide needs correction too.)
should be: negative 15 / 14

should be: -25 / 21

2. Slide number two, which is teacher's directions and does not project: It is helpful to copy and paste that text, "Teacher Tips" into the Notes area of slide number three. Then when I'm giving the slide show in "Presenter View", I can see those notes as I project slide number three, but my audience can't see them.

3. It might also be helpful to illustrate that is doesn't matter which point is considered (x1, y1) and (x2, y2). The slope is still the same.

Truly, it is a wonderful demonstration. Many thanks!
Thanks so much for the feedback! I have fixed those errors and changed the presentation given your suggestions! I hope you can re-download. Thanks again!
In this example slide #4 shouldn't your numbers for the x and y be (3-9) and (5-9) which will give you a positive 3/2? Otherwise, nice powerpoint. Have a blessed day.
It doesn't matter which point is (x2, y2) and (x1, y1), generally, when looking at a graph you read left to right, the first point would be (x1, y1) which is (5, 3). This is a good conversation to have with students, as you'll notice the answer remains the same.
