In this calculus worksheet, students answer 14 short-answer questions regarding Euler's Method, rate equations, initial conditions, and slope functions.
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.
Seeing is Believing
Students read about AP calculus online. In this calculus lesson, students learn real life usage for calculus. They read about instructors and their experience teaching and incorporating calculus into the real world.
Polynomial Approximations--An Introduction to the Taylor Series
Twelfth graders examine the Taylor Series. In this calculus lesson, 12th graders explore the representation of a function as an infinite sum of terms calculated form the values of its derivatives at a single point, hence the Taylor Series. Students use a TI-89 to explore the patterns and the command to compute the Taylor series.
Introduction to Tangent Lines using the TI-Nspire
Students make mathematical argument using the concept of Limit. In this algebra lesson, student calculate the instantaneous rate of change from the linear graph. They use a TI-calculator to create a visual of the graphs.
Looking at Polynomials as Dynamic Mathematical Objects
Learners explore graphs of polynomials. In this Pre-calculus/Calculus lesson, students investigate the problem of constructing the expression for a polynomial curve based on the dynamic properties of the curve. TI-Interactive is required to perform the algebraic manipulations.
Students make an inquiry with the aid of technology into the concept of functions. The emphasis of the lesson is on the interplay between the geometric and analytic information.
Physics 240: Sound Waves
