#### Storyboard Text

• I have been having so much trouble in math lately, slope is something that confuses me so much!﻿ I just don't get how to find the slope or graph it.
• Let me explain it to you, lets talk a walk while we are at it.﻿
• ﻿Alright keep going i think I'm understanding.
• So, lets say you have an equation of y=2x+4. You will first graph the y-intercept which in this case is 4. After this step you will find the slope.﻿
• But how will i implement the number 2 in my graph to show the slope.
• After you graph the y-intercept, you will take the "m" in the y=mx+b format and use that as your slope.
• I have never heard about rise over run, please explain it.
• ﻿Great question, so since "2" is a positive number the line of the slope will be going up. Use the technique of rise over run.
• Ok..ok, but what if my number of my slope is negative
• You take the number 2 and put it as your rise and your run will be 1 because there is nothing there. You go to your y-intercept and you will go up 2 and go to the right 1 time and thats how you will get the slope on your graph. You will do this repeatedly to get a longer line for your slope.
• Alright thank you so much i have learned so much from you. I actually now understand how to find and graph slope.﻿
• Another great question, your slope will obviously be negative so it will be going down so when you graph it you'll want to go down 2 but still go to the right 1 time. Rise over run will still be implied with a negative slope, only thing is for rise you will have to actually go down.
