Gradient Between Two Points

New Review

The rate of change between points describes how quickly one variable changes relative to another. The video instruction concentrates on calculating the slope between two points using the slope formula. The instructor first explains the formula using a graph to illustrate the change in y and change in x prior to calculating the slopes.
