Converting velocity/time graph to acceleration/time

How do I do that?

acceleration is the rate of change of time. The rate of change is found by looking at the slope of the graph.

So if velocity is increasing steadily from 0 m/sec at t=0 to 4 m/sec at t=2, then the slope is a constant 2 m/sec2. The slope corresponds to a constant acceleration of 2.
 
That's what I thought, thanks.
