In mathematics, the

slopeorgradientof a line is a number that describes both thedirectionand thesteepnessof the line. Slope is often denoted by the letterm.

- The
directionof a line is either increasing, decreasing, horizontal or vertical.

- A line is
increasingif it goesupfrom left to right. The slope ispositive, i.e. .- A line is
decreasingif it goesdownfrom left to right. The slope isnegative, i.e. .- If a line is horizontal the slope is
zero. This is a constant function.- If a line is vertical the slope is
undefined(see below).- The
steepness, incline, or grade of a line is measured by the absolute value of the slope. A slope with a greater absolute value indicates a steeper lineSlope is calculated by finding the ratio of the "vertical change" to the "horizontal change" between (any) two distinct points on a line. Sometimes the ratio is expressed as a quotient ("rise over run"), giving the same number for every two distinct points on the same line. A line that is decreasing has a negative "rise". The line may be practical - as set by a road surveyor, or in a diagram that models a road or a roof either as a description or as a plan.

The rise of a road between two points is the difference between the altitude of the road at those two points, say

y_{1}andy_{2}, or in other words, the rise is (y_{2}−y_{1}) = Δy. For relatively short distances - where the earth's curvature may be neglected, the run is the difference in distance from a fixed point measured along a level, horizontal line, or in other words, the run is (x_{2}−x_{1}) = Δx. Here the slope of the road between the two points is simply described as the ratio of the altitude change to the horizontal distance between any two points on the line.In mathematical language, the slope

mof the line is

The concept of slope applies directly to grades or gradients in geography and civil engineering. Through trigonometry, the grade

mof a road is related to its angle of inclineθby the tangent function

Thus, a 45° rising line has a slope of +1 and a 45° falling line has a slope of −1.

As a generalization of this practical description, the mathematics of differential calculus defines the slope of a curve at a point as the slope of the tangent line at that point. When the curve given by a series of points in a diagram or in a list of the coordinates of points, the slope may be calculated not at a point but between any two given points. When the curve is given as a continuous function, perhaps as an algebraic formula, then the differential calculus provides rules giving a formula for the slope of the curve at any point in the middle of the curve.

This generalization of the concept of slope allows very complex constructions to be planned and built that go well beyond static structures that are either horizontals or verticals, but can change in time, move in curves, and change depending on the rate of change of other factors. Thereby, the simple idea of slope becomes one of the main basis of the modern world in terms of both technology and the built environment.
