This set of 9 stations helps students review the use of many important features of the graphing calculator (e.g. entering functions, setting a viewing window, finding zeros and points of intersection, setting and using a table). There are 9
In this discovery activity, students use a graphing calculator to evaluate a function and its derivative at given x-values. The activity is arranged so that students clearly see the results of the exploration and can easily make a (correct)
This is a Desmos-based exploration of the graphs of the reciprocal trig functions. Students need access to Desmos to complete the exploration as written.
The ability to graph y = asin(bx), y = acos(bx), and y = atan(bx) are prerequisite skills.
This is a set of 11 stations for practicing the Power Rule in calculus. It is assumed that students know the properties of derivatives (addition rule, subtraction rule, coefficient rule) but no other differentiation techniques are needed (NO PRODUCT
These 14 task cards focus on the relationship between a function and its derivative in all representations (graph, table, word problem, and function rule). The meaning of the function vs the meaning of the derivative...what we learn from f(x) vs
Set of four Pi Day activities for secondary students. Instructions for each activity included.
NOTE: In the thumbnail images, the "pi" symbol is appearing as a question mark. In the document, the Greek letter will appear, I promise!
This activity includes 10 stations for students to complete. After completing a station, they move to the next station, where the answer to the previous station is included with the next problem. A great way to give feedback and get kids moving and
This is a summative activity to be used after learning about linearization (linear approximation) and differentials (Lesson 4.5 in Finney 3ed).
There are 8 task cards (2 on linearization, 2 on differentials, 1 tangent line, 2 MVT, and 1 IVT).
An (editable) PowerPoint document with 10 task cards for practicing sum and difference identities in Trigonometry. The ten cards are lettered A-J, with increasing complexity.
I printed out 4 cards per page, horizontally, then cut and laminated them
This is a set of 12 stations/task cards on composition of functions. The focus here is on using multiple representations (equations, tables, graphs, and verbal descriptions) to evaluate f(g(a)). Students will need to read graphs and tables to
