Students observe real world relations (which are their “patients”) and determine slopes as slope doctors! They determine the type (positive, negative, zero, or undefined), give the exact slope by finding the change in y over the change in x, and diagnose, or explain the real world meaning.

This resource is provided in a printable version for in-person face-to-face learning and in a digital version through Google Forms for distance learning. The 12 real world slope examples are also provided as a PowerPoint, which could be displayed in class or shown virtually for discussions.

Some examples are simple, and some are challenging. This activity is sure to engage students in working with different kinds of slopes.

Idea for Implementation:

Doctors (students) visit each slope and fill out their reports individually. Then doctors meet as a group to discuss and agree on the diagnosis!
