# Finding the Slope of a Line

This toolset will help you be able to find the slope of a line. This aligns with the 8th grade Common Core standard, "CCSS.Math.Content.8.EE.B.6 Use similar triangles to explain why the slope m is the same between any two distinct points on a non-vertical line in the coordinate plane; derive the equation y = mx for a line through the origin and the equation y = mx + b for a line intercepting the vertical axis at b."
