Big Ideas: You can recognize scenarios where a constant increase or decrease occurs by creating a table of values and linking equal differences to equal intervals. These situations can be modeled by linear functions. This lesson builds on examining function situations and looking for rates of change. This task poses many different situations to the student. The student must examine each scenario and figure out which scenario has a constant rate of change. This builds towards working with rates and being able to identify rates in different situations. Vocabulary: Rate of change Depreciation
