Applications of Derivatives

Students investigate the absolute maximum of a function.  In this absolute value of a function lesson, students find the absolute maximum and minimum of a function on a closed interval of 1 to 4.  Students find the derivative of the function and set it equal to zero to find possible absolute maximums and minimums.  Students use their Ti-Nspire to complete the investigation.
