4. The Derivative as an Instantaneous Rate of Change. The derivative tells us the rate of change of one quantity compared to another at a particular instant or point (so we call it "instantaneous rate of change"). This concept has many applications in electricity, dynamics, economics, fluid flow, population modelling, queuing theory and so on.

Algebra II – January ’19 [26] Question 30 30 The average monthly high temperature in Buffalo, in degrees Fahrenheit, can be modeled by the function B(t) 25.29sin(0.4895t 1.9752) 55.2877, where t is the month number (January 1).

5-20 Holt McDougal Algebra 1 Practice B Rate of Change and Slope Find the rise and run between each set of points. Then, write the slope of the line. 1. 2. 3.

Algebra Games In these lessons, we will learn how to solve distance word problems where the objects are traveling in different directions. Distance problems are word problems that involve the distance an object will travel at a certain average rate for a given period of time. The formula for distance problems is: distance = rate × time or d ...
