Have you ever closely observed a slide in a playground?

Observe the inclination the slide makes with the horizontal line which is the ground.

The slope is a measure of how the line/slide angles away from the horizontal.One can also think of slope as the "slant" of a line The slope of a line is a rate change and the letter m is used to represent slope we define the slope as the rise over the run of a line.
