As you go along the curve from A to D, the slope...

Becomes increasingly positive.

Describe the Slope

The graph has a Constant Large Negative Slope

The slope at C is...

The slope at C is medium and positive

Describe the Slope

Contant zero slope

Compare the slopes at points B and C

B has a high positive slope

C has a medium positive slope

Describe the Slope of this graph

Begins with a large positive slope.

The slope gradually decreases until the slope is equal to zero.

As you go from A to E, the slope...

Decreases

Describe the steepness

Negative Steepness

Decreasing Steepness

(We say the slope is "decreasing" when the "hill" is getting less steep.)

Describe the Slope

Slope = 0 at the start.

Abruptly changes to constant negative medium slope.

Abruptly changes back to a slope of zero.

Describe the Slope

Zero

Describe the Slope

The slope is medium, positive, and constant.

Describe the Slope of the Red Line

The slope is infinite.

Some may describe this as "undefined."

Compare slopes at C and D

Both are negative slopes

C has a higher slope

Describe the steepness or slope at A

Zero

Describe the Slope

Medium, Constant, Positive.

The slope at B is....

The slope is small and positive at point B

The slope at D is....

Large and Negative

Describe the slope at point E.

Zero

Describe the slope of this graph.

The slope starts out medium and positive and is fairly constant.

Then, the slope rapidly decreases to zero and then becomes increasingly negative.

At the end, the slope is medium, constant and negative.

Describe the Slope

Slope = Infinity

or

The slope is undefined.

How does the slope at point C compare to the slope at point D?

Both are postive slopes, but C has a higher slope.
