Slide 3:

… the less accurate the slope The longer the skateboard ….

Slide 4:

and looking at the slope at one spot… P Zooming in on part of the hill

Slide 5:

P We get a more accurate measure … if we move the wheels closer together

Slide 6:

P We get a more accurate measure … if we move the wheels closer together

Slide 7:

P Definition of the slope of a hill at a point: The slope of a hill at point P is the LIMIT of the slopes of skateboards with one wheel at point P, as the other wheel approaches the wheel at P.
