Investigating One Definition of Derivative

Young scholars explore the concept of derivatives.  In this derivatives lesson, students use the derivative definition as the limit approaches zero.  Young scholars make tables as the value of h gets closer and closer to zero from both the positive and negative direction.  Students use TI Interactive! to find the slope of a secant line and find the limit as h approaches zero.
