Core 1 - Introduction to differentiation

Core 1 - Introduction to differentiation

An Excel worksheet to help illustrate the concept of differentiation. The worksheets included explore quadratic, exponential and trigonometric functions. Each shows the function and its derivative. **NEW *** Also included a new sheet exploring differentiation from first principles. You will need to allow macros to run when using most of the sheets available here. This can be checked by opening Excel and clicking Tools Macros Security and choosing Medium or Low security. Also, some sheets require you have Analysis ToolPak installed - this is found by clicking Tools Add ins (you may need the original MS Office disks to do this). Updated 20/06/10.

Connected Rates of Change - A Level

Connected Rates of Change - A Level

The aim of this activity is to introduce students to the idea of connected rates of change in a practical manner. Increasing blots of ink, shrinking balloons… Aren’t these activities crying out for an experiment? This activity gets students to consider how the height of water in a cone changes using a video of the experiment. If you have access to taps in your classroom you can even get the students to carry out the experiment for themselves. Students will need to be familiar with the chain rule. The warm up is meant to open a discussion.
