This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 10, Unit 2, Grade 8. In this activity, students practice graphing lines with a given slope. They observe two important properties of slope: Lines with the same slope are parallel. As the slope of a line increases so does its steepness (from left to right). Look for students who draw slope triangles to help construct their lines. Other students may count off horizontal and vertical distances.
