Unit 7, Lesson 22# Average Rate of Change

EngageNY 45 min(s)

Students compute the average rate of change in the height of water level when water is poured into a conical container at a constant rate. Working through the problem, students should reach an important conclusion about constant rate and average rate of change. Students compute the average rate of change of water-level height as a cone is filled with water at a constant rate. The rate of change of water height is not constant.
