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, ï¿½Calculus Derivatives 2ï¿½ and ï¿½Calculus Derivatives 2.5 (HD).ï¿½ 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. For 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 plan, 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.
Students investigate the capabilities of the TI-89 calculator. In this Calculus lesson, 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 assess transformations to remove integral symbols as well as to simplify expressions. They explore the Symbolic Math Guide to assist them in solving indefinite integration by parts. This lesson includes partial fractions, sum/difference and scalar product transformations.
