Product Description
Before delving into calculus directly, I like to give my precalculus/IB students something to which they can relate: the concept of instantaneous velocity, as it applies to the infamous cartoon coyote. This activity "holds their hands" through the process of calculating the coyote's instantaneous velocity from an informal limits perspective.

I use it within cooperative groups, and I circulate to make sure they are getting the purpose of the questions.

The file includes spiral review problems.

This worksheet is intended for students to show their work on a separate sheet of paper.

Please download the pdf preview file first, so you can see exactly what's included; the product file is a word document, which you may personalize for your students.
