11th - Higher Ed

This video covers the differential notation dy/dx and generalizes the rule for finding the derivative of any polynomial. It also extends the notion of the derivatives covered in the Khan Academy videos, ï¿½Calculus Derivatives 2ï¿½ and ï¿½Calculus Derivatives 2.5 (HD).ï¿½ Note: Additional practice using the power rule for differentiating polynomials (including some with negative exponents) is available to the listener.

#### Calculus: Derivative of x^(x^x)

11th - Higher Ed

Sal starts with an example of finding dy/dx of y = x2 and builds to showing the solution to the more complicated implicit differentiation problem of finding the derivative of y in terms of x of y = x ^ x ^ x .

#### Derivative Formulas

9th - 11th

In this calculus worksheet, students solve functions using the derivative formulas. There are 26 formulas for them to review and go over.

#### Graph And Their Derived Function

10th - 12th

Young scholars analyze graphs and determine their general shape. In this calculus lesson, students solve functions by taking the derivative, sketch tangent lines and estimate the slope of the line using the derivative. They graph and analyze their answers.

#### Limits and Derivatives

11th - 12th

In this calculus instructional activity, students evaluate functions and solve problems using the derivative. They apply the rules of limits to solve functions where the limit of x approaches zero. There are 12 problems to solve.

#### L'Hopital's Rule Example 2

11th - Higher Ed

Sal shows two different ways of finding the limit of a rational expression where the limit of the polynomial is of an indeterminate form involving infinity. First, he shows how to solve this using Lï¿½Hopitalï¿½s Rule and then by using the factoring method to solve for the limit algebraically. Note: Practice problems on Lï¿½Hopitalï¿½s rule are available and can be practiced now or after watching the other example videos.

#### Proofs of Derivatives of Ln(x) and e6x

11th - Higher Ed

In this video, Sal takes on the challenge of proving both the derivative of ln x = 1/x and of ex = ex, showing that no circular logic is used in the proof. It contains a clearer version of both proofs shown in the videos titled, _Proof d/dx e^x = e^x” and _Proof: d/dx (ln x) = 1/x.”

#### Graphs of Functions and Their Derivatives

9th - 12th

Students practice the concept of graphing associated to a function with its derivative. They define the concepts of increasing and decreasing function behavior and explore graphical and symbolic designs to show why the derivative can be used as an indicator for the behavior.

#### Time Constant Calculations

10th - Higher Ed

In this time constant worksheet, students answer 52 questions about the rate of current changes and voltage changes in capacitors. They analyze circuits and determine the time it takes for capacitors to change voltage and they specify voltages at specified times.

#### Time Constant Circuits

10th - 12th

In this time constant circuits worksheet, students answer 23 questions about the design of circuits that need time delays, about capacitors and inductors, and about resistors and the design of circuits.

#### AP Calculus Practice Exam BC Version: Part B

11th - 12th

In this calculus activity, students solve 17 multiple choice problems. Students find limits, summations, and derivatives of functions. Students find the area of an enclosed region between two curves.

#### Seventeen Multiple Choice Calculator AP Calculus BC Practice Test

12th - Higher Ed

For this AP Calculus BC worksheet, students answer seventeen multiple choice questions with the use of a calculator. The questions are a fifty minutes times practice test for the AP exam.

#### AP Calculus Practice Exam BC Version- Section I -Part B

12th - Higher Ed

In this AP Calculus Practice Exam worksheet, students solve seventeen multiple-choice questions using a graphing calculator. This BC practice test is designed to be finished in fifty minutes.

#### A.P. Calculus Practice Exam BC Version Section I Part B

12th - Higher Ed

For this AP Calculus practice test worksheet, students prepare for the BC version on the test by solving seventeen multiple-choice questions using a calculator. The test should be timed and 50 minutes in length.

#### Equation of a tangent line

11th - Higher Ed

Using a specific example, Sal shows how to find the equation of a tangent line to a given function at a specific point. Specifically, he solves the problem of finding the tangent line to the function f(x) = xex at x = 1. This problem provides a review of the product rule, slope-intercept form of a line, and steps for finding the equation of a line. It also, provides a nice visual understanding of the problem by graphing both the original equation and the found tangent line.

#### Word Problems

10th - 11th

In this calculus worksheet, learners use integration to solve word problems they differentiate between integration and anti derivatives, and between definite and indefinite integrals. There are 3 questions with an answer key.

#### Implicit Differentiation on the TI-89

12th - Higher Ed

Students analyze implicit differentiation using technology. In this calculus instructional activity, students solve functions dealing with implicit differentiation on the TI using specific keys. They explore the correct form to solve these equations.

#### Test on 3.1-3.5

12th

Twelfth graders assess their knowledge of trig functions and their properties. In this calculus lesson plan, 12th graders take a test on derivatives, trig functions, and the quotient rule. There are 2 different versions of the same test available.
