Slides designed to help teach rate of change and slope. A total of 9 slides with space to illustrate and write during the lesson and the file you download contains a jpeg, PDF, and power point file.
Construct a function to model a linear relationship between two quantities. Determine the rate of change and initial value of the function from a description of a relationship or from two (x, y) values, including reading these from a table or from a graph. Interpret the rate of change and initial value of a linear function in terms of the situation it models, and in terms of its graph or a table of values.
Calculate and interpret the average rate of change of a function (presented symbolically or as a table) over a specified interval. Estimate the rate of change from a graph.
Interpret the slope (rate of change) and the intercept (constant term) of a linear model in the context of the data.
