Do your students have difficulty with the basic skills when finding derivatives by first principles?
Does your text book have too few examples for good guided practice?
Do you sometimes wish you had a more complete resource?
If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, then this one is for you!
Featuring 20 full length, color coded examples along with 41 practice problems at progressively increasing difficulty as well as 2 Geogebra files (with instructions) to visually enhance your usual presentation, this resource aims to provide you all that is necessary to give your students a successful introduction to calculus.
Starting with simple substitution, the examples and problems are designed to isolate each individual skill necessary to determine a derivative from first principles. Then, using Geogebra, the student is presented the ideas behind derivatives in a very dynamic and visual way. By following this process, even the more difficult limits and thus derivative functions are determined.
Most students struggle with visualizing how Newton and Leibniz imagined the first derivatives. But, with Geogebra, the concepts can be brought to life through a step-by-step, teacher-paced presentation that clearly and definitively addresses the common misconceptions that several students will have.
Eight pdf pages of examples, questions and answers for your students along with two geogebra files and four pdf pages explaining "how to" for your presentation will provide you with a complete resource to fully explore this topic.
