In this worksheet, students work out the gradient of a line on coordinate axes. Key stage:  KS 4

Curriculum topic:  Algebra

Curriculum subtopic:  Use y = mx + c to Identify Parallel and Perpendicular Lines

Difficulty level:   ### QUESTION 1 of 10

 Gradient of line  = y-step x-step

Example

Find the gradient of the red line. First we must find points with whole number coordinates on the red line in order to build a "step". The line slopes from top left to bottom right so the gradient will be negative.

The vertical part of the step (y-step) = -4

The horizontal part of the step (x-step) = 3

 Gradient of line  = y-step = -4 x-step 3

Find the gradient of the red line.
