Differentiating Special Functions
In this differentiating special functions worksheet, students solve and complete 5 various types of problems. First, they differentiate each of the given functions. Then, students complete the table using a calculator and plot the points on a graph.
11th - 12th Math
Twelfth graders investigate derivatives. In this calculus instructional activity, 12th graders use technology to explore the basic derivatives and how to choose the proper formula to use them. The instructional activity requires the use of the TI-89 or Voyage and the appropriate application.
Derivatives of Exponential Functions
Students take derivatives of exponential functions. In this taking derivatives of exponential functions lesson, students prove the derivative of an exponential function is the exponential function. Students find derivatives where the base is a constant and the exponent is a variable.
11th - 12th Math
A Penny Saved is a Penny Earned
Students explore the concept of exponential growth. In this exponential growth lesson, students manipulate power models with base 2. Students discuss what would happen if you doubled a penny over the course of 20 days. Students graph their results using a scatterplot.
9th - 12th Math
Stochastic and Deterministic Modeling
Explore the difference between stochastic and deterministic modeling through programming. First have the class write algorithms for relatively simple tasks using pseudocode. Use the Python 2.7 program app to simulate Mendel's Pea Pod experiment as an example of a stochastic process where probability and randomized variables are used and different outcomes are possible for the same inputs.
11th - Higher Ed Math CCSS: Designed
In this derivative worksheet, 11th graders solve and complete 8 various types of problems. First, they find the value of the derivative of the given function at the indicated point. Then, students complete the table by rewriting each function into a derivative and then simplifying.
Lesson #55 Test on Logarithms and Exponentials
Twelfth graders assess their knowledge of logarithmic and exponential functions. In this calculus lesson, 12th graders demonstrate their knowledge of all concepts of logarithmic and exponential functions. Students apply the derivatives of the logs and exponential functions.
New Functions From Old, Part 1
In this function worksheet, students use various methods to solve functions. They explore the logarithm function, the derivative of an exponential function, and compose a function with a linear equation. This four-page worksheet contains explanations, examples, and four problems.
Higher Ed Math
Modeling Natural Disaster with Mathematical Functions
Ninth graders investigate the functional relationship of different environmental phenomena. In this math lesson plan, 9th graders create models of various natural disasters. They use logarithmic and exponential functions to interpret population growth.
What is the Slope of the Stairs in Front of the School?
Mathematicians apply the formula for line slope to determine the slope of stairs in their school. They work in small groups to take the appropriate measurements, perform the necessary calculations, and find the mean of their group slope calculations.
