slope
declive

Explanation:
"Declive" sounds more mathematical to me. I might reword e.g. like compreendidos os conceitos de declive e equação de uma linha.

Explanation:
This is a very complex topic. We know we do not have equations of lines, but functions of lines in Brazil because we write the equations as functions, first of all. They simply do y := f(x) (using Maple symbols) and then change that into an equation, so that it makes sense to them saying equations of lines. Slope is the angle formed by the line and the x-axis, so that it is called angle coefficient in Brazil. It is hard to accept that they call line the straight line, but we see at Wolfram's, for instance, that that is the case. Line means linha in Brazil and therefore could be any curve, not only the straight line.
