Slope

The measure of the tilt of a line, the rise over run or how much the line moves up for every movement to the right.For a straight line in the plane, the slope is the tangent of the angle it forms with the positive X axis. For a curve the slope is the slope of the tangent line. If the slope is constant a line is straight.
