Students will measure rise and run and calculate percent slope using photos of real wheelchair ramps and stairways. They will compare these slopes to the maximum slope of wheelchair ramps as mandated by state law in Georgia.
Log in to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Use similar triangles to explain why the slope m is the same between any two distinct points on a non-vertical line in the coordinate plane; derive the equation 𝘺 = 𝘮𝘹 for a line through the origin and the equation 𝘺 = 𝘮𝘹 + 𝘣 for a line intercepting the vertical axis at 𝘣.
