Analyze This Function
In this derivatives activity, students solve 11 short answer and graphing problems. Kids find inflection points, increasing and decreasing intervals, maximums and minimums, and graph an exponential derivative. Students use the quotient rule to find the derivative.
11th - 12th Math
Linear and Quadratic Approximations
Students explore a linear, a parabolic, and a log function. In this Algebra II/Pre-calculus lesson students investigate the graph a line, a parabola, and a log function. Students examine the three graphs as they compare and contrast the three in a problem solving context.
11th - 12th Math
Students graph functions and their inverse. In this graphing functions and their inverse instructional activity, students plot a point and its' image. Students plot the exponential and logarithm functions. Students find the slope of the function and its inverse by taking the derivative.
11th - 12th Math
Math 155 - Worksheet 5. Derivative
In this derivative worksheet, students find the derivative of given functions and find the equation of a tangent line to a curve. They differentiate functions and work velocity and acceleration functions. This two-page worksheet contains five multi-step problems.
Higher Ed Math
Students examine the stars and constellations. In this Seven Stars instructional activity, students manipulate logarithmic formulas to discover star properties. Students read the story of the Seven Stars in the Crow culture and discuss the brightest stars as viewed from Earth.

An Introduction to the TI-Nspire Calculator Function
Pupils explore the calculator function of the TI-Nspire. In this secondary mathematics lesson, students investigate many of the features of the calculator function of the TI-Nspire. Pupils review basic computation, square roots, absolute values, exponential functions, logarithmic functions, trigonometric functions, summations and matrices as they explore the TI-Npsire.
9th - 12th Math
Inverse Functions: Pennies, Pressure, Temperature and Light
The major goal of this instructional activity is to collect data from a variety of experiments, and then determine what type of model best fits the data, and explain why. Students will explore a variety of relationships using pennies, pressure, temperature, light, and pe
Continuous Probability Distributions
In this continuous probability distribution instructional activity, students identify discrete and continuous distributions. They calculate the linear combination of the independent normal random variable and determine probabilities using exponential distribution.
10th - 12th Math
Newton's Law of Cooling
Twelfth graders investigate exponential decay. In this Calculus lesson, 12th graders explore Newton’s Law of cooling which can be modeled by a differential equation. Students use the model to solve a murder as they examine the temperature of a body to determine time of death.
