Calculus Curve Sketching
This packet contains 5 worksheets that you can use to help students work on the concept of curve sketching. The worksheets in this packet focus on the sketching of graphs. If your students need practice with the algebraic portion of the curve sketching process, see my Calculus Curve Sketching Competency Tests
The first 2 worksheets will help students draw the graph of the first and second derivative from the original function, or the original and second derivative from the first derivative graph.
Worksheet 3 and 4 will help students draw more complicated graphs of rational functions. They will be guided through the steps of finding holes, vertical asymptotes, horizontal asymptotes, and intercepts. (An additional worksheet is included for use after worksheet 3.)
Worksheet 5 will help students understand the Second Derivative Test.
Two sets of stickers formatted for Avery 5163 stickers are included for the topics of “What Does the First Derivative Tell Me” and “The Second Derivative Test.” Don’t have stickers? Just print and cut.
Finally, 3 versions of a quiz that I use to help students understand curve sketching are included.
Answers to quizzes are included.
