This video covers the differential notation dy/dx and generalizes the rule for finding the derivative of any polynomial. It also extends the notion of the derivatives covered in the Khan Academy videos, �Calculus Derivatives 2� and �Calculus Derivatives 2.5 (HD).� Note: Additional practice using the power rule for differentiating polynomials (including some with negative exponents) is available to the listener.
Students construct the graph of derivatives using a tangent line.  In this construction of a graph of a derivative lesson, students use their Ti-Nspire to drag a tangent line along a graph.  Students graph the slope of the tangent line.  Students discuss the similarities and differences between the original graph and its derivative.
Twelfth graders explore the concept of limits.  In this calculus lesson, 12th graders investigate the limit rules for both finite and infinite limits through the use of the TI-89 calculator.  The worksheet includes examples for each rule and a section for students to try other examples. 
In this circuits worksheet learners complete a series of questions on equations, robotics and integration.  There is an answer sheet. 
In this capacitance learning exercise, students solve 19 problems about capacitance, voltage, electric charge and Ohm's Law. They use calculus to solve some of the problems and they are given equations used to solve different capacitance problems.
Students investigate an article on local linearity. In this calculus lesson, students read about the application of math in the real world. They gain insight from the teachers view of how to teach and relate the topic to the real world.
Sal starts with an example of finding dy/dx of y = x2 and builds to showing the solution to the more complicated implicit differentiation problem of finding the derivative of y in terms of x of y = x ^ x ^ x .
This video covers the differential notation dy/dx and generalizes the rule for finding the derivative of any polynomial. It also extends the notion of the derivatives covered in the Khan Academy videos, "Calculus Derivatives 2Ó and "Calculus Derivatives 2.5 (HD).Ó Note: Additional practice using the power rule for differentiating polynomials (including some with negative exponents) is available to the listener.
Twelfth graders investigate derivatives.  In this calculus lesson plan, 12th graders use technology to explore the basic derivatives and how to choose the proper formula to use them.  The lesson plan requires the use of the TI-89 or Voyage and the appropriate application.
In this calculus activity, students use integration to solve word problems they differentiate between integration and anti derivatives, and between definite and indefinite integrals. There are 3 questions with an answer key.
Students explore derivatives and antiderivatives using the TI. In this calculus lesson, students relate integrals to real life scenarios. They identify the antiderivative through graphing.
In this inductance worksheet, students answer 20 questions about magnetic fields as they relate to inductors, inertia, transistors, and the flow of current through circuits.
Students use online resources, including animations,to define the slope of a curve and how to calculate the slope. They solve 8 problems online, using the definition of the derivative of a function at a point to calculate slope of the curve.
Twelfth graders assess their knowledge of trig functions and their properties. For this calculus lesson, 12th graders take a test on derivatives, trig functions, and the quotient rule. There are 2 different versions of the same test available.
Students review derivatives and equations for their test. For this calculus lesson, students review average rate, parametric equations, tangent line to a curve and value of a derivative to prepare and show mastery on a chapter test. They show proficiency on rig derivatives and differential equations.
Students review integrals and how they apply to solving equations. In this calculus lesson plan, students assess their knowledge of derivatives, rate of change, and lines tangent to a curve. This assignment contains two version of the same test concept.    
In this calculus worksheet, students solve functions using the derivative formulas. There are 26 formulas for them to review and go over.
Students analyze graphs and determine their general shape. In this calculus instructional activity, students solve functions by taking the derivative, sketch tangent lines and estimate the slope of the line using the derivative. They graph and analyze their answers.
Using the TI-89 calculator, students explore the statistical, graphical and symbolic capabilities of the TI-89.  Students investigate topics such as solving systems of equations, finding inverse functions, summations, parametrics and trigonometry.
Students investigate exponential functions.  In this Algebra II/Pre-calculus lesson students find an exponential model from a set of data.  Students investigate the affects of changing parameters have on the graph of an exponential function.
