In this packet you will find 10 task cards that students can use to Find the Error. Each card contains a short calculus problem and a proposed solution. Students are expected to find the error in the solution and then give the correct solution.
The 10 cards contain problems about the following topics:
+ equation of a normal line
+ find the derivative of a trig function (chain rule)
+ find the value of the derivative that includes radicals
+ set up and find the volume of a space rotated around a line other than the x or y axis
+ an integral that needs to be solved by using u-substitution
+ find the maximum value of a function over a specific interval
+ tricky limit that is actually a derivative
+ set up and find the volume of a space defined by cross sections
+ find the area between two curves
+ use implicit differentiation to find the derivative
Correct answers provided.
I have also included an answer sheet that students can use to record their answers.
