Mathematics with Mrs. Oberg

September 30, 2014

Students in math class are working on finding the slope of a line.  Slope is used in many places in our world.  Contractors consider slope when building houses.  They have to make sure the roof of the house and stairs are not too steep.  They also need the sidewalks to angle out from the house so the rain goes away from the house and/or garage.  While building handicap ramps or boat ramps the grade must be considered.  Slope is everywhere!
