1.6 Intermediate Value Theorem
This is the sixth and last lesson in the Limits Unit. The lesson contains Guided Notes, homework, SmartBoard lesson, and all solutions. Don’t forget the added bonus of a math joke embedded into the Smartboard lesson ☺! You may have also opted to purchase the video lesson to the notes.
In this lesson the first of three existence theorems in Calculus will be discussed – the Intermediate Value Theorem. Students will determine what the Intermediate Value Theorem is, how to know when it applies, and how to know when it doesn’t apply. Students will see some AP-like examples of how this theorem has appeared on the AP exam. Finally, students will continue to learn how to write intelligent mathematical sentences in order to defend their solutions.
I hope you find the notes easy to follow. Please feel free to offer any suggestions on how to make them better as well! Through a community of collaboration, we can find that “sweet spot” for our students and their learning process.
All the best,
