The average rate of change of f(x) with respect to x as x changes from a to b is the value change in f ( x) f (b) − f (a ) = change in x b−a The average rate of change = slope of secant line joining (a, f(a)) and (b, f(b)) on the graph of f. Difference Quotient Difference Quotient Let f be a function. The average rate of change of f over the interval from x to x + h is given by the difference quotient. f ( x + h) − f ( x ) h Joke Time Joke Time How do you catch a “unique” rabbit? “Unique” up on him!
