Gradient:

Gradient is the measure of a line’s steepness (slope).

The gradient of a line describes the change in y values as the x value increases by 1.

The size of the gradient tells us how steep a line is.

The sign ( + or – ) tells us whether the line slopes up or down.

Gradient formula:

Gradient = vertical rise / horizontal run

m = rise / run

= change in y value / change in x value

= y2 – y1 / x2 – x1

The gradient of any horizontal line is zero.

The gradient of any vertical line is undefined.
