### Slopes in real life

1. 1. Slopes in Real Life<br />
2. 2. Zero (Horizontal) Slope<br />The sunset on the horizon is an example of a zero slope because it goes horizontally.<br />This picture represents a zero slope because it’s a bridge going horizontally.<br />
3. 3. Zero (Horizontally) Slope<br />These books represents a zero slope because these books are aligned horizontally so they have a zero slope.<br />This tree branch has a zero slope because it’s growing horizontally.<br />
4. 4. Zero (Horizontal) Slope<br />The picture of the wire is the last example of zero slopes because the wire runs side to side or horizontally.<br />
5. 5. Undefined (vertical) Slope<br />The Twin Towers went vertically. An undefined slope goes up and down and that’s how these buildings are built.<br />Most lamp posts go vertically and that’s how undefined slopes are. This is an example because lamp post stand straight.<br />
6. 6. Undefined (vertical) Slope<br />This picture represents an undefined slope because grass goes straight up vertically, just like an undefined slope.<br />A rocket goes straight up during launch. An undefined slope goes vertical also.<br />
7. 7. Undefined (vertical) Slope<br />This french fry is going up and down. This is an example of an undefined slope because they both go vertically.<br />
8. 8. Positive Slope<br />The mountain is a representation of a positive slope because the left side is going up or increasing.<br />In this picture, the roller coaster is increasing and going upwards just like a positive slope.<br />
9. 9. Positive Slope<br />The Great Pyramids of Egypt is a good example because since it’s a triangle, on one side it’s a positive slope.<br />This picture of a flight of stairs is a good representation because the stairs are going upwards and increasing.<br />
10. 10. Positive Slope<br />The picture of the circus tent is a good example because the slope of the circus tent matches a positive slope.<br />
11. 11. Negative Slope<br />This picture represents a negative slope because the left side is going towards the negative quardinant.<br />The X is an example of a negative slope because on one side, the line is going downwards.<br />
12. 12. Negative Slope<br />This picture represents a negative slope because these people are aligned to where when looking at them left to right, they’re going downwards.<br />This rainbow is an example of negatives slopes because the rainbow can be seen going down when looked at left to right.<br />
13. 13. Negative Slope<br /> This picture of the glacier mountain represents a negative slope because this mountain is going down.<br />
14. 14. Steeper Slope<br />The Eiffel Tower has a long steep drop on it. Although it’s not straight so this falls under a steep slope.<br />The christmas tree shows a deep drop making it a steeper slope.<br />
15. 15. Steeper Slope<br />This heel has a slope. Its very high but at the same time still tilted.<br />These knifes have curves on the blades. They are so steep that they look straight, but aren’t. This makes them steeper slopes.<br />
16. 16. Steeper Slope<br />This stick of bamboo is a steeper slope because its barely tilted but not straight.<br />
17. 17. Flatter Slope<br />This picture of a jet’s path represents a flatter slope because its going horizontally except with a tilt.<br />This human see-saw is a representation of a flat slope because the giant board is straight but with a tilt.<br />
18. 18. Flatter Slope<br />This saw has a flat slope that’s not quite flat but with a tilt.<br />This picture of a fork shows a flatter slope because at the handle a fork is straight, then starts to lift.<br />
19. 19. Flatter Slope<br />This carrot has a slant at its edge. Since it’s not straight, this carrot has a flatter slope or is an example of one.<br />
20. 20. Definition of Slope<br />to have or take an inclined or oblique direction or angle considered with reference to a vertical or horizontal plane; slant<br />
