#### The gradient of a line tells us how far up or down we go when we take one step to the right:

On a grid like the one below we can draw lines with different gradients.
Check you agree that the black line is one of several that could be drawn with a gradient of 2 and the red line is one of several that could be drawn with a gradient of $-\frac{2}{3}$

Picture some more lines with different gradients. You may want to use this sheet to record your working.
