Rates of Change

Students are expected to be able to identify and solve problems with constant rates of change involving distance and speed. This resource package provides a variety of activities to provide students with the opportunity to develop and practise these skills.

Students are also required to interpret the gradient at a point on a curve as the instantaneous rate of change; apply the concepts of instantaneous and average rate of change, using gradients of tangents and chords, in numerical, algebraic and graphical contexts, solve and interpret the answers in growth and decay problems, including compound interest and work with general iterative processes.
