Step 3: Rate this video

Watch the following video to and complete the 3-2-1 about it.

Step 4: Correct Rebecca's work

After Rebecca looked at the graph, she wrote the following:


"I think this graph is definately not a linear graph because the rate of change is very different. I think this graph shows a quadratic relationship because when you subtract the differences of the time, you get the same ammount."


Do you think Rebecca is correct? Be sure to explain how you know.
