Modelling Inverse Proportion

              Modelling Inverse Proportion

              Students learn how to model inverse proportion problems using the constant of variation.

              As learning progresses students begin to consider non-linear indirect variations.

              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to derive a formula in the form 1/x to model inverse proportion.
              • Most students should be able to derive a formula to model inverse proportion and use it to calculate unknown values.
              • Some students should be able to derive and use a formula to model when one unit is inversely proportion to the square or cube of another.
