Lesson Summary:

This lesson teaches how to use the difference quotient to estimate a derivative or to find the average value of a function over a particular interval. With the help of a TI graphing calculator and the difference quotient, the video walks through the steps to evaluate a function at a specific point and compute the average rate of change over an interval. The lesson also demonstrates how to use the same technique to solve another problem that requires finding the average rate of change of a function over an interval.

Lesson Description:

Learn how to find the average rate of change using a TI graphing calculator and the difference quotient.
