Join the family picnic and see how all the functions come together in a PowerPoint that highlights their main features. As it includes topics such as domain, range, and intercepts, the slides are a great guide to promote class discussions.
AP Calculus classes follow along as a video tutorial explains the process of determining the location of local maximum and minimum. The instructor first finds the derivative using the Quotient Rule. After finding the critical values, he...
Students review Rolle's Theorem. In this derivatives lesson students review for a chapter test on applications of derivatives. Links to two copies of the test are included with the lesson.
In this intervals instructional activity, students determine the coordinates at a point of inflection. They compute the deritative of a function and sketch curves that satisfy given conditions. Students solve equations using the Mean...
In this interval worksheet, students identify the largest interval for a given situation. They explore and explain functions, their derivative, relative maximum, and relative minimum. Students graph functions and determine the...
Students determine the monotonicity and concavity properties of a function, then apply the First Derivative Test and draw conclusions about the first and second derivatives from these properties.
