Product Description
This lesson introduces the notion of a secant line and illustrates how secant lines can be used to find approximations to tangent lines. It also includes a discussion of how the slope of the secant line can be interpreted as the average velocity on a position versus time graph.

There are several review sections on lines for students that may need a bit of a reminder on how to find the slope and how to write the equation of a line.

This lesson is appropriate for both AP Calculus AB and BC.

Detailed answer keys are included.

The topics covered include:
-Definition of a Secant Line
-Review of Slope
-Review of Point-Slope Form and Slope-Intercept Form
-Finding the Equation of a Secant Line
-Interpretation of a Secant Line
-Definition of a Tangent Line
-Using Secant Lines to Find a Tangent Line

In this product, you will find the following:
-Powerpoint Presentation (27 slides)
-Guided Notes (4 pages, a "filled in" copy is also included)
-Do Now Slips (4 slips on one page, answers included)
