Welcome: Rate of Change and Slope
Description: Linear functions the rate of change is called the slope. The slope of a line is the ratio of the change in y-values to the change in x-values. Linear functions have a constant rate of change, meaning values increase or decrease at the same rate over a period of time. Interpreting Functions — F-IF Functions — 8.F Linear, Quadratic, and Exponential Models★— F-LE__________________________________________________________________________ Objectives Students will be able to recall the formula for calculating the slope of a straight line, understand how slope is related to the rate of change of two quantities, calculate the rate of change of two quantities in a linear relationship given two points that the line passes through, an input–output table, a graph, determine whether a slope is positive, negative, 0, or undefined, compare multiple linear relationships and their rates of change.
