AP Calculus HOT TOPICS: Introducing Slope Fields
This HOT TOPIC
is made for your AP Calculus students to introduce the concept of visualizing a differential equation and to help them gain proficiency in their ability to sketch slope fields, distinguish between slope fields and find particular solutions given initial conditions.
You will find a set of PRACTICE QUESTIONS
that can be used as a homework assignment, a set of TASK CARDS
, and an INFOGRAPHIC
that students can use as a reference tool. There is a student recording sheet for the matching task card activity and an answer key for all items.
Teachers will have:
A SMART Board® presentation for introducing slope fields, along with instructions for how to teach the lesson, and a set blackline masters for printing transparencies if you do not have an interactive whiteboard in your classroom.
Students will practice the following skills:
☑ Draw slope fields
☑ Identify slope fields for given differential equations
☑ Develop techniques for how to distinguish between slope fields
