This is a one day lesson that is part of a larger package known as a Jet Tour of Calculus.
This lesson focuses on the behavior of functions (increasing and decreasing functions) and relationship to steepness of a graph.
Other lessons in the package are:
1. Introduction to Instantaneous Rate of Change
3. Definite Integrals
4. Using Formulas to find Definite Integrals
Each lesson is designed to use the graphing calculator to building understanding for the five topics graphically, numerically, analytically, and verbally. Each lesson is designed to be completed in one regular class period of 40-50 minutes.
A two question assignment is also included.
Answers to all activities are included.
This is a great way to begin a study of calculus.
