Challenge Discussion Sheet 8

In this differential worksheet, 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.

Lesson Planet has given me great ideas to use in Phonics and Math this year. My students comprehension skills have improved so much because of the great lessons I have found!
