Do your Calculus students need to sharpen their derivative skills? This is a sample of what I call a Gateway Activity for AP Calculus AB, or Calculus BC, and Calculus honors.
Each quarter my students have a “GATEWAY Skill-Builder” to master by the end of the grading period by making a perfect score. I usually create about 10 different versions for these 15-minute timed quizzes. We work a few in class first to get the main ideas secure. Then, students are given three timed attempts during class. If they don’t succeed after the third attempt, they come during free time, either before school or after school to try-try-again!
Second quarter is derivative practice. Here is a mini-set of 3 to get you started. Once these are mastered, students can handle anything that would show up on the AP Exam.
Answer Keys are included.
