The
average speed of a car on a journey is a very familiar concept
and can be used to illustrate a very important mathematical concept
clearly. This concept is that of the rate of change of a
function during an interval.
Likewise,
the speed at which a car travels at any particular moment is another
familiar concept. This piece of information can lead us to the notion
of the instantaneous rate of change of a function or a point.
The
examples and exercises presented in this unit have been taken from
"Matemáticas de Bachillerato 2. Grupo CERO" published by TEIDE.
