This lesson provides practice in determining and comparing the rate of change of functions. Students compare tables, equations, and graphs to determine the greater rate of change. The lesson begins with students creating tables of values from a growing pattern and graphing the results. This provides an opportunity to introduce the concept. A journal entry is also included. I use this to summarize the lesson or as a warm up on a subsequent day. The journal page can be glued on the left side of the notebook, leaving room for notes on the right side. Use it however you wish!
