Great introduction to Curve Sketching for your students applying what they have learned about the first and second derivatives. Great for visual learners.
This innovative activity is designed for Calculus 1, AP Calculus , and Calculus Honors and is an introduction to Unit 3, Applications to the Derivative. In this activity, students analyze and identify graphs based upon a table of values for f(x) and f ′(x).
I use this activity before doing any of the sections in the unit, before extrema, increasing – decreasing, critical values, absolute and relative maximums and minimums. I find it gives students an introduction to the analytical skills needed in this unit. And, since it based upon what they know, it is a very positive exercise for them.
☑ Two Sets of Task Cards: There are 15 cards which are color coded with similar problems. A second set identical set is self checking with QR codes printed on the cards.
☑ Student response sheets
☑ Answer Key
You do not need an internet connection to use the QR coded cards, but you do need an electronic device with a QR reader app installed. There are many ways to vary the activity. Use as Task Cards in groups or with stations.
