Calculus Curve Sketching
This activity is intended to help students practice identifying the graph of the derivative of a function from the original graph and the original graph from the derivative of a function.
Each student is given either an equation, the graph of the original function, or the graph of the derivative of a function. Each student is also given a worksheet to fill in to try to guide their thinking in finding their matches.
I was originally thinking of using this as a valentine activity, because students could be encouraged to find their match AKA their valentine :) However, I did not use any valentine graphics or references so this activity could be used anytime of year.
A class of 30 students can play this game at a time, although it can be adjusted for any smaller number of students.
