It is how much something is tilted. For example a mountain has a slope that can be steep or shallow. I'm sure other people can explain it better, so here is a more technical explanation: https://www.e-education.psu.edu/natureo ... /html/1837

Wikipedia has an article about Slopes in General: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grade_(slope)
and another one about the mathematical term that is most likely used in Origami applications: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slope
