In this part of our course, we introduce the concept of instantaneous rates of change. At the precalculus level, the study of constant and average rates of change are introduced as early as elementary school when students start working with fractions. However, in many reallife applications (such as the speed at which an automobile travels), rates are not constant and it becomes important to study instantaneous rates of change. Differential calculus is the branch of mathematics that deals with this topic.
