              Instantaneous Rates of Change

              Students learn how to calculate and interpret instantaneous rates of change in different contexts.  By drawing a tangent at a point on a curve students find the gradient as an instantaneous rate of change.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to find the equation of a line that is tangential to a curve at integer values of x
              • Most students should be able to find the equation of a line that is tangential to a curve.
              • Some students should be able to use variation to model a non-linear function and calculate an instantaneous rate of change.
