Rates of Change

Study with Me – Rates of Change

Using Calculus to Find Rates of Change, Application to Motion, Exponential Growth and Decay

In this video, I will demonstrate how to answer some typical rates of change exam questions using examples from real exams under Extension 1 Maths (3U) course. Examples include:

  • How to interpret functions in terms of time

  • Calculating the rates of change using the derivative

  • Application in straight line motion and exponential growth and decay

This is relevant for both Year 11 and Year 12 students preparing for HSC Mathematics and HSC Maths Extension 1 for 2020 and onwards.

Pumped for some extra practice? Here’s a revision question set on rates of change for you to try at home.
