We look at acceleration as the rate of change of speed.

Technically rate of change of velocity is acceleration. However speed and velocity are interchangeably used while problem solving, the vector property of motion is considered deliberately rather than as a rule.

In other words acceleration can be also called rate of change of speed.

...Sounds daaah.....that's why humanity is yet to make great leap in science...we are to understand light, gravity, etc....we are scared of precise definitions.
