Rate of Change Note
The graph below shows how the distance changes over time during a trip. We can use
the graph to find the rate of change or speed of the car during the trip.
rate of change =
rise = the VERTICAL distance between points

Drawing Scatter Plots
The table below shows the world record times in seconds for womens 500 m speed
skating from 1983 to 2001.
Perimeter = 2L + 2w
Area = Length x Width
Perimeter = 4s
Area = s2
P = 2b + 2c
Perimeter = a + b + c
A = bh
Area = b x h
C = d or C = 2r
A = r2
A = (a + b) h
