This lesson introduces the notion of higher derivatives. Students begin by looking at second derivatives. They learn the notation of second derivatives and they apply the concept of a second derivative to a motion problem by looking at acceleration. Finally, higher derivatives are introduced.
This lesson is appropriate for both AP Calculus AB and BC.
Detailed answer keys are included.
