```4.2 Rate of Change Notes and Practice
Name_______________________
To find the rate of change between two quantities, divide the difference in the y-coordinates by the difference in
the corresponding x-coordinates.
The coordinates will look like this: (x1 , y1), (x2 , y2) The subscript 1 is for the first ordered pair and
the subscript 2 is for the second ordered pair.
The formula to find the rate of change looks like this:
y2 - y1
____________
x2 - x1
Notice that the values of the first
ordered pair are subtracted from
the second ordered pair.
When you have a _______________ rate of change, these statements are true:
As one quantity(x) _____________, the other quantity(y) _____________.
As one quantity(x) _____________, the other quantity(y) _____________.
This is how it looks in a table:
x
y

This is how it looks in a graph
This is how it looks in an equation
y = 2x
When you use the formula to find the rate, it will look like this:
How? : Pick 2 ordered pairs, then find the
difference between the y-coordinates by the difference between the x-coordinates
Try points (

Practice Rate of Change
Temperature: Use the table at the right. It shows the
outside air temperature at different times during one day.
This is how it looks in an equation
y=5
Name____________________________________
1. Find the rate of temperature change in degrees per
hour from 6am to 8am and from 4pm and 8pm.
2. Between which of these two time periods was the rate
of change in temperature greater?
3. Make a graph of this data.
4. During which time period(s) was the rate of change in
temperature positive? negative? 0 degrees per hour? How
can you tell from your graph?
