Linear Approximation Teacher Resources
Find Linear Approximation educational ideas and activities
Showing 1 - 12 of 12 resources
Learners investigate Differential equations using derivatives. In this calculus lesson, students solve problems of differential equations by taking the derivative and explaining the changes that occurred in the equation and circle. They define the formula and practice solving lots of differential equations.
10th - 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
Looking at Polynomials as Dynamic Mathematical Objects
Students 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.
11th - 12th Math
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.
Physics 240: 24
In this physics 240:24 worksheet, students apply the concepts of wave, speed and sound, and oscillation to correctly answer the word problems provided. Students apply their understanding of pressure and molecular motion to calculate the speed of sound and oscillation in the given problems.
