IN MATH: 1. n. a number representing the "tilt" or inclination (symbol m). 2. the ratio of
vertical change to horizontal change; "change in y over change in x." EX. Vertical lines
have no slope.
See:

The Dope on Slope  for secants, tangents, normals, derivatives

Slope in Sound & Picture  a sequence of notes (increasing in frequency) and a speed at which the notes are sounded are used to permit one to "hear" a slope

 Algebra Notes

Three Most Important Functions

Lines

vertical lines, x = a, a = some constant

horizontal lines, y = a, a = some constant

linear functions, y = ax + b, etc.

Equations of Lines, y  y_{1} =m (x  x_{1}), etc.
