**Slope** is a measure of the change in the vertical position in every change in the horizontal position from one point to another.

The slope can be computed using the formula: .

When a linear equation (with no powers greater than one) is written in slope-intercept form (), the slope is , the coefficient of .

In calculus, the slope of a function at any point is equal to the derivative at said point.
