Are your calculus pupils aware that they are standing on the shoulders of giants? This lesson provides a big picture view of the connection between differential and integral calculus and throws in a bit of history, as well. Note: The calculus controversy paper is not included but one can find a number of good resources on the Internet regarding the development of calculus and the role of Newton and Leibnez.
In this calculus worksheet, students solve 10 different problems that include determining the first derivative in each. First, they apply properties of logarithmic functions to expand the right side of each equation. Then, students differentiate both sides with respect to x,using the chain rule on the left side and the product rule on the right. In addition, they multiply both sides by y and substitute.
