This activity lets calculus students practice chain and derivative rules but also let loose their inner child with some coloring! (Truthfully, my Calculus students enjoy the coloring aspect more than my Algebra students do!) Students need to know how to use product rule, chain rule, and basic trig derivatives (sine and cosine) in this partner activity. Each partner completes their 11 problems and color the section of the ugly sweater accordingly. Although partners are solving different problems, each set has similar problems so the partners can decide together if the chain, product, or a combination will need to be used. A great activity for around Christmas and the Holidays!
There are 2 versions included: The first has all 22 problems on a worksheet that the two partners share (I put the worksheets in a plastic sleeves and have the students do work on their personal whiteboards), or if you want the students to have work shown on their worksheet, the second version has separate pages for partner A and partner B so there’s more space for solutions.
