PreCalculus: The Derivative and Tangent Lines
This is the fourth lesson in a five-lesson unit on INTRO TO CALCULUS. Designed for PreCalculus Honors students with a basic understanding of function behavior, the file includes everything you need to teach the lesson:
* Two options of an 8-page Bound-Book Dinah Zike Foldable*, used with permission
* A fully-editable SmartBoard Lesson Presentation
* Homework assignment
* Two forms of a Daily Quiz to help your students succeed
* Answer keys and directions
Students will be able to find the derivative by the limit process, and find the derivative at a point using the alternate definition of the derivative. They will also write the equation for tangent lines at a given value of x.
The unit on Introduction to Calculus includes the following topics:
1) Limits – A Graphical Approach
2) Finding Limits Analytically
3) Limits at Infinity and Continuity
4) The Derivative and Tangent Lines
5) Derivatives and the Power Rule
You need Smart Notebook software to run the presentation.
It can be displayed through the software and a projector. If you don't have a SmartBoard, you can also use an IPAD App , such as SplashTop, to remotely write on the presentation. You can also use Smart Notebook Express
