2. 2. Rate of Change of a Linear Relationship The rate of change of a linear relationship is the steepness of the line. rise run Rate of Change =
3. 3. Rates of change are seen everywhere.
4. 4. The steepness of the roof of a house is referred to as the pitch of the roof by home builders.
5. 5. Give one reason why some homes have roofs which have a greater pitch . There is less snow buildup in the wintertime.
6. 6. Engineers refer to the rate of change of a road as the grade .
7. 7. They often represent the rate of change as a percentage .
8. 8. A grade of 8% would mean for every rise of 8 units there is a run of 100 units . = 8% 8 100 Rate of change =
