Grade Level7th/8th
Week #9
Unit of InstructionUnit 3: Introduction to Functions
Standard(s) Taught

MAFS. 912.F-IF.2.6: Calculate and interpret the average rate of change of a function (presented symbolically or as a table) over a specified interval. Estimate the rate of change from a graph.

MAFS.912.A-APR.2.3: Identify zeroes of polynomials when suitable factorizations are available, and use the zeroes to construct a rough graph of the function defined by the polynomial.

MAFS. 912.F-IF.2.6: Calculate and interpret the average rate of change of a function (presented symbolically or as a table) over a specified interval. Estimate the rate of change from a graph.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

• define and explain interval, rate of change and average rate of change.

• calculate and interpret the average rate of change of a function, represented algebraically, on a graph, or a table, or as a set of data, over a specific input interval.

• compare the rates of change of two or more functions when they are represented with function notation, with a graph, or with a table.

• interpret the meaning of the average rate of change (using units) in the context of the problem.
