Rates of Change

Includes a Geometer Sketchpad file with several individual pages and easily changeable components that provides a great environment for students to explore and learn about rates of change. Also included is a notes and task sheet for use by the students that provides instructions and what students need to record. Developed by Alan Bennetto and David Storck of Westbourne Grammar and trialled by them with their year 10 students.

The Tasks and Notes for students are found in this file.
