Identifying Graphs of 1st and 2nd Derivatives (Activity)

Using the graphing calculator, students learn how the graphs of the first and second derivatives describe the behavior of the original function.

This activity requires students to match up the graph of a function with the graphs of its and derivative. This will help students to visually compare graphs and see how slopes at different points transfer to the graph of the derivative.

This is a nine-lesson unit on Applications of Differentiation for students enrolled in AP Calculus AB or BC, Calculus Honors, or College Calculus. Every lesson includes ✎ A set of Guided Student Notes ✎ A daily homework assignment ✎
