Slope is used in many aspects of life.  Road construction crews need to consider the  slope of the roads to prevent accidents and help with water run off.  Driveways and sidewalks to houses cannot be too steep, but still need to have slope so that the rain water does not run into the garage or the house.  When a person is constructing a wheelchair ramp, a roof, or stairs, they need to pay attention to the slope so that it is not too steep.  Slope is considered in sports such as skiing, snowboarding, and bmx racing.  It is also found in art.  An artist considers different slopes so that their work will be pleasing to the eye.  Slope is all around us.
