Instructor Overview
In this lesson, students use their knowledge of rates, graphs of rates, and formulas to solve problems.
Key Concepts
The formula for a rate is a mathematical way of writing a rule for computing a value. Rate formulas describe a constant relationship between two quantities. Each point on the graph of a rate shows a pair of related values. A graph of a constant rate is a straight line.
