The instantaneous rate of change is the rate of change of a function at a certain time. If given the function values before, during, and after the required time, the instantaneous rate of change can be estimated. While estimates of the instantaneous rate of change can be found using values and times, an exact calculation requires using the derivative function. This rate of change is not the same as the average rate of change.
