Develop mastery of Proportion and Rates of Change to achieve success in assessments and exams.

Available in


Year 10 Proportion and Rates of Change is aligned to the Australian Mathematics curriculum. This topic explores direct and indirect proportion in practical contexts, such as the relationship between walking speed and the distance travelled. Students studying Year 10 Proportion and Rates of Change read and interpret distance-time graphs, identify direct and indirect relationships from a description or graph, and use rules for direct and indirect variation between two variables (e.g. speed and distance).
