Engaging New Activity - Dots and Boxes for Calculus
This fun activity is designed for first semester Calculus. Students, as sophisticated as they believe they are, still love playing dots and boxes. This is the game where they take turns drawing lines to close or capture a box. In this Calculus version, each box has a function in it. When they capture the box, they must find the derivative and evaluate it at a given value. They record the values on their recording sheet and when all the boxed are captured, add their points to see who wins. Lots of strategies built in, as some values are negative.
This “edition” of the game includes finding derivatives using addition and subtraction, and the power rules. It does not include transcendentals, product rule, quotient rule, or chain rule.
Great practice and lots of fun! Answer key included. Look for more versions soon.
