m = tanθ sorting task

The aim of this sorting task is to draw learners attention towards the relationship between angles and gradient.  Further, the inclusion of the worded “for every x boxes along go y boxes up” and the diagrams is to help learners consider gradient’s meaning from a geometric perspective.  Often it can appear that learners see gradient as being a number with no inherent meaning.
