I wrote this worksheet for my IB/Precalculus students so they could see how to apply the chain rule to determine the derivative of a composition of functions. The questions are worded in triples: once to find the derivative of the first function, once for the derivative for the second function, and then for the composition of functions.
I use this activity within cooperative groups, and I circulate to make sure they are getting the purpose of the questions.
The file includes spiral review problems.
For this worksheet, I expect students to show their work on a separate sheet of paper.
