Slope and Slant

Tonight's HW is HW8.

In class today we worked on "Slope and Slant". We talked about the relationship between the slope of a line and the angle of inclination of a line. Here are some websites that talk about today's topic.

How does the slope relate to the angle of inclination?

"As the slope of the line gets steeper, then the angle of inclination......."

What general principle (using trigonometry) relates the slope of a line to its angle of inclination?
