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.
Twelfth graders examine the Taylor Series. For 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.
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.
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.
