Rate of Change

Utah Teapot


In applications,

  • the functions usually represent physical quantities,
  • the derivatives represent their rates of change,
  • and the equation defines a relationship between the two.
  • The derivative measures the instantaneous rate of change of the function, as distinct from its average rate of change.
  • The aspect ratio of a graph is an important factor for judging rate of change.
