At about the 3:51 mark the teacher says I could have done 60-20 and 9-6; he should have said 9-3.

Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, you will learn how to find the rate of change using a table. The rate of change is essentially a ratio of changes between two quantities. You will discover how to determine the independent and dependent variables and how to find the change in those variables by subtracting two values. Once you have found the change in each variable, you simply write the values as a ratio to obtain the rate of change.

Lesson Description:

Find the rate of change given a table

I show how to solve math problems online during live instruction in class. This is my way of providing free tutoring for the students in my class and for students anywhere in the world. Every video is a short clip that shows exactly how to solve math problems step by step. The problems are done in real time and in front of a regular classroom. These videos are intended to help you learn how to solve math problems, review how to solve a math problems, study for a test, or finish your homework. I post all of my videos on YouTube, but if you are looking for other ways to interact with me and my videos you can follow me on the following pages through My Blog, Twitter, or Facebook.
