Lesson 21: Variation
Course Topic(s): Developmental Math | Variation
The lesson begins with a comparison of data tables and graphs of two functions, one directly proportional (cost of gas) and the other exponential (population), before a definition for direct variation is introduced. Direct variation is then linked to linear function (f(x)= kx) and the scaling property of direct variation is examined (i.e. a multiple of the independent variable will always correspond to that same multiple of the dependent variable). Direct variation with a power of (x) follows with a test for direct variation before indirect variation and indirect variation with a power of (x) are introduced.
