This lesson is designed for AP Calculus AB, AP Calculus BC, Honors Calculus, and College Level Calculus 1. It is part of Unit 3 Applications to the Derivative.
Included is a fully animated PowerPoint lesson with twelve problems
. All answers and steps are animated to maximize student input. There is one trigonometric and one exponential problem which I have placed at the end or the handout and presentation. If you are not doing Early Transcendentals, you can easily save these for later.
✓ Maximizing and Minimizing Area
✓ Maximum Production
✓ Maximizing Volume
✓ Maximizing Angles
Also included is a matching handout
for students either for notes or for Homework. I usually do a few problems with the class on the first day and assign the rest as Homework. On the second day I go over the rest of the problems, and a third day if needed (usually).
Please note that the PowerPoint is not editable.
