Give your students engaging practice with the circuit format! In order to advance in the circuit, students must search for their answer (sometimes it is dy/dx evaluated at a specified point, sometimes it is just dy/dx). These 16 questions are progressive in nature and so it could even be used as guided notes. I generally use circuits after I have given only a few examples in notes, then let the idea unfold for the students as they work quasi-cooperatively on the circuit. This format has allowed me to move away from being in "direct instruction" mode into being more of a facilitator. Also, the circuit format would be great for anyone who is "flipping" their classroom.

This circuit has no exponential nor logarithmic functions, and no inverse trig functions (there are some regular trig functions). The entire circuit can and should be worked without technology.

I do not include an answer key since the answers are embedded in the circuit. The only prep the teacher needs to do is work the circuit ahead of the students, the circuit takes are of the rest!

These circuits are thoroughly checked, but if you ever find a mistake or need to give other feedback, I would love to hear from you!
