Challenge Discussion Sheet 8

In this differential activity, students compute the rate a boat is approaching a dock when given the height and length of a rope. They find the rate the angle formed when a rocket is launched at given distances above the ground. Students use Newton's Method to estimate the solution to three problems. They use a differential to estimate answers for two problems. The final problem asks students to compute the percentage error using the differential's estimate.
