When do we acknowledge temperature in identifying rate?

$aR \to bP, Rate = -\frac{1}{a} \frac{d[R]}{dt} = \frac{1}{b}\frac{d[P]}{dt}$

When do we acknowledge temperature in identifying rate?

I'm confused in what situation we would have to incorporate temperature in our solutions to kinetics-based questions. It seems that for many questions, rate constants are not affected by a provided temperature, but I know that reactions occur faster when temperature is increased. In what type of question would this information be important?
