Find rates of change and slopes.

Relate a constant rate of change to the slope of a line.

A rate of change is a ratio that compares the amount of change in a dependent variable to the amount of change in an independent variable.

If all of the connected segments have the same rate of change, then they all have the same steepness and together form a straight line. The constant rate of change of a line is called the slope of the line.

Tutorial
