Mean Value Theorem
Sal spends most this video explaining what the Mean Value Theorem says in a very intuitive way. He follows this with a concrete example of finding the value of a function on a closed interval where the slope is the same as the average slope of the function over that interval.

Graphical Consequences of Continuity
Students explore and examine the continuity of three functions: horizontal zooming, polynomial function, and oscillating functions. They practice graphing functions, generating tables and navigating the zoom, vars and test menus on their graphing hand held calculators.

Grab a Story and Go!
Multiple heads are better than one! Learners pair up to write short stories that have three solid paragraphs: the introduction, body, and conclusion. To keep all learners on track, the teacher times each segment. Consider including time to share.

Choosing a Cell Phone Plan
Here is an activity that should catch the attention of your class! It focuses on the real-world problem of selecting the best cellular phone plan. This exercise would be especially good to use when introducing piecewise functions. Learners compare costs for various data plans, considering such features as unlimited talk and unlimited texts, to determine which plan is the most cost effective for different scenarios.

Math may have one right answer, but there can be multiple ways to find that answer. Input and output are the foundation of functions, and this activity allows pupils to chose their method to solve for a future output. Bring this activity into your classroom and let your learners practice with graphing, tables, or equations to find the solution from given data.

Making Piecewise Functions Continuous and Differentiable
Students explore the concept of piecewise functions. In this piecewise functions lesson, students discuss how to make a piecewise function continuous and differentiable. Students use their Ti-89 to find the limit of the function as it approaches a given x value.
