- Average Rate of Change: Exploring More Functions
- Polynomials, rate
- Choose the polynomial of degree four and delta x = 0,5. Select x0 from -2.8 to 2.8. Make a table for the x intervals in which m is negative, zero, or positive. What is the orientation of the secant line (increasing, decreasing or horizontal) when m is negative, zero, or positive? You found a relationship between the m value and the position of the secant line. Is this relationship also correct for the exponential function 3 x e^(-0,5x)
