### What is gradient concept?

: **a theory in embryology**: embryonic differentiation is the result of gradation in the potentialities for development of various parts of the embryo of such nature that successful differentiation of a part inhibits the potentiality for similar change elsewhere in the system.

### What is the definition of gradient in math?

Click to see full answer. Furthermore, what is the definition of gradient in math? Gradient is another word for "slope". The higher the gradient of a graph at a point, the steeper the line is at that point. A negative gradient means that the line slopes downwards. The video below is a tutorial on Gradients.

### What does it mean when a graph has a negative gradient?

The higher the gradient of a graph at a point, the steeper the line is at that point. A negative gradient means that the line slopes downwards. The video below is a tutorial on Gradients. Finding the gradient of a straight-line graph

### What do you call a line that has a gradient of zero?

A line that goes straight across (Horizontal) has a Gradient of zero. so a "straight up and down" (vertical) line's Gradient is "undefined". Sometimes the horizontal change is called "run", and the vertical change is called "rise" or "fall": They are just different words, none of the calculations change.

### What is the difference between a gradient and a slope?

NEGATIVE Gradients and Slopes go DOWNHILL from left to right. ZERO Gradients and Slopes are FLAT or horizontal and do not go up or down. INFINITE or UNDEFINED Gradient or Slope goes straight up, and is neither uphill or downhill. This final type of Gradient or Slope is one which goes straight up.
