2.7 Implicit Differentiation
This is the seventh lesson in the Derivatives 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, students will understand what implicit differentiation is and when to apply it. They will understand how to do implicit differentiation with the Product, Quotient, and Chain Rules. Additionally, they will complete implicit differentiation with trig functions. Students will find slopes and tangent lines, and find when tangents are horizontal or vertical. Finally, by the end of the lesson, students will understand how to find the second derivative when implicit differentiation is needed.
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 better challenge and support our students and their learning process.
All the best,
