Skill isolation: Finding the equation of a line with given gradient and y-intercept
Skill isolation: Finding the gradient of a through two points
Use this applet to practise finding the gradient of a line through two points. Click the dashed line segments to help you, or click “Show gradient” to reveal the answer. You can then try finding the gradient of a new line by clicking the “New line” button or by moving the red points around. You can also use your mouse’s scroll function or pinch to zoom in or out.
