12 Rate of Change by Equation, Graph, or Table
Objective: Given a function y = ƒ(x) specified by a graph, by a table of values, or by an equation, describe whether the yvalue is increasing or decreasing as x increases through a particular value, and estimate the instantaneous rate of change of y at that value of x.
