Gauge how much you know about rates of change with this easily accessible quiz and worksheet combo. You must be able to solve problems using your knowledge of this concept in order to do well on this short quiz.

With this quiz, you will measure your ability to:

- Solve sample average and instantaneous speed problems
- Understand how to tell if instantaneous and average rates of change are the same on a graph
- Note which type of rate of change measures change at one particular instant in time
- Use a particular function to determine the speed of a car after a given amount of time

**Reading comprehension**- ensure that you draw the most important information from the lesson, such as the type of rate of change that measures change at one instant in time**Problem solving**- use acquired knowledge to solve rates of change practice problems**Knowledge application**- use your knowledge to compare instantaneous and average rates of change on a graph and use a function to determine speed

You can review more detailed information by referring to the lesson titled Average and Instantaneous Rates of Change. By studying this lesson, you will learn:

- What things can be measured using rate of change calculations
- The slope of a type of line on a graph that gives you instantaneous rate of change
- What the slope of a line tangent to a graph is called
