Methods of Applied Mathematics 2

In this chain rule and directional derivatives worksheet, students solve 4 different word problems related to determining points. First, they find the rate at which a trees volume grows per year when its radius is a particular number and its height is a certain number. Then, students find the directional derivative of a function at a point in the direction of the vector. In addition, they find the directions of the steepest slope and the magnitude of the slope in that direction.

Hi, I was recently hired as a middle school science teacher in Newark, NJ. I received a call on a Friday and was asked to begin the following Monday. As a new teacher, and with only 3 days to prepare, I was really feeling the pressure. The school requires 2 weeks of lesson plans every Sunday, so I began searching the web for help. Thank goodness I found Lesson Planet. I still use the site everyday to form great lessons and activities for the kids.
