Twelfth graders investigate logarithm differentiation.  In this calculus lesson, 12th graders explore situations in which one would use logarithmic differentiation as an appropriate method of solution. Students should have already studied the chain rule.
In this calculus worksheet, students solve problems using U-Substitution. They find antiderivatives  using indefinite integrals. There are 18 questions with an answer key.
In this calculus activity, students perform integration by parts. They solve differential equations as they use integration by part to solve unlike terms. There are 23 problems with an answer key.
In this calculus worksheet, 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.
Greg Kelly puts together another great slide presentation to demonstrate ways to combine derivative rules to evaluate more complicated functions. This pattern is called the chain rule.  He shows step by step ways to solve these complicated problems.
In this practice exam learning exercise, students solve 17 multiple choice problems. Students find derivatives, points of continuity, maximums, minimums, integrals, and area of enclosed regions.
Sal solves an example for finding the rate of change of the height of water in a cone at a specific point when it is being filled at a given rate. In this video, Sal reviews the volume of a cone and the chain rule and then, uses these to find the change in height with respect to time.
In this Ares-V cargo rocket worksheet, students read about this multi-purpose launch vehicle and its rocket boosters. Students are given an equation that relates the acceleration of the rocket to the time and mass of the rocket. They graph the thrust curve and mass curve, they graph the acceleration and they determine the rocket's absolute maximum in a given interval.
Twelfth graders review the rules for derivatives and use them to solve problems. In this calculus lesson, 12th graders apply the power rules for derivatives correctly to solve equations. This assignment contains lots of examples of derivatives worked out.
In this calculus worksheet, students solve problems using the chain rule to take the derivative and solve the function. There are 6 questions which require the students to find the correct strategy to solve the equations.
In this calculus worksheet, 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.
This lesson plan provides an introduction to integration by parts. It helps learners first recognize derivatives produced by the product rule and then continues with step-by-step instructions on computing these integrals. It also shows integrating special forms with e and trigonometric functions. This resource includes handouts and a practice worksheet. 
In this calculus learning exercise, 12th graders perform logarithmic differentiation on functions for which the ordinary rules of differentiation do not apply.  The one page interactive learning exercise contains eleven problems.  Answers are included. 
In this math worksheet, learners practice finding the solutions to the problems that focus upon the differential operators of vector fields.
In this related rates problem worksheet, students use the chain rule and implicit differentiation to solve related rate problems, such an writing an expression relating to the ripple of a circle. This three-page worksheet contains eleven multi-step problems.
Students define the product rule and use it to solve problems. In this calculus lesson, students review rules they learned and memorize the new rules as it relates to derivatives. They solve problems through differentiation by proving the product rule.
In 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.
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.
In this AP Calculus practice test instructional activity, 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.
In this differentiable function worksheet, students identify differentiable functions and calculate the derivative of a function. This two-page worksheet contains eight multi-step problems.
