I like to have students understand the derivative of a function in terms of limits, so I wrote this worksheet to give my students a tangible, numerical approach to help them determine the derivative of functions such as that of the natural logarithm.
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.
