Calculus Link Sheet Package (12 Templates)

Calculus Link Sheet Package (12 Templates)

This package includes 12 templates to help students understand and make connections between the equations, tables, and graphs of functions and relations. These link sheets allow students to view multiple representations and to have a graphic organizer to guide them through various topics covered in AP Calculus. The teacher will begin by giving students an equation or situation for a specific template. The students will complete the table, graphs, and understanding questions on the remainder of the link sheet. This activity is great for students to work collaboratively and share and discuss the connections in math with one another. These activities will allow students to gain a better understanding of domain, range, limits, points of discontinuity, extended functions, removable discontinuities, differentiability, maximums, minimums, shelfs, increasing and decreasing intervals, concavity, sign charts, optimization, related rates, linearization, differentials, chain rule, composite functions, net area, total area, integrals, and separable differential equations. This package include link sheets that cover the following topics: 1) Limits 2) Continuity and Differentiability 3) Derivatives 4) Sketching First and Second Derivatives 5) Sketching Functions 6) Optimization 7) Related Rates 8) Linearization/Differentials 9) The Chain Rule (Simple Version) 10) The Chain Rule (Advanced Version) 11) Net Area and Total Area 12) Separable Differential Equations

Introduction to exponentials and exponential curves

Introduction to exponentials and exponential curves

Aimed at first lesson with KS4/5 pupils on exponentials. (will be using it with my IB year 12s) Covers what an exponential is, recaps the index laws (rules of exponents), links in to domain and range of functions and transforming functions so would work well after covering those topics. discussion tasks, starter activity, drawing and comparing graphs hope you enjoy, please leave feedback in a review (the 2 files are basically the same, one with UK terms used the other with the terms needed in the IB) cheers

GCSE 9-1 Exam Question Practice (Functions)

GCSE 9-1 Exam Question Practice (Functions)

This carefully selected set of exam questions has fully-worked solutions designed for students to go through at home. This can save a lot of valuable time in class. Click https://tes.com/.../Exam Question Practice to download questions on 40 other topics. -- These 'booklets' cover the full range of skills expected at GCSE for this topic. The questions include inverse functions and composite functions. They are great for independent study, for a homework , or for working together in class. I usually print these questions as an A5 booklet and issue them in class or give them out as a homework. I also make them available for a student who wants to do independent study.

Graph Transformation Match cards

Graph Transformation Match cards

This resource enables students to test their understanding of graph transformations. Once printed the individual cards should be cut out. The object of the exercise is to match each function with a description of the transformation and 3 example graphs. The function machine representations are provided to help with understanding (and therefore remembering) the effects of the different transformations. The way I teach this is to get students to think about whether the alteration happens before the function (so effect along the x axis) or whether it happens after (so effect along the y axis) Solutions are provided. This page could be printed and provided as notes if desired.

Functions lesson with differentiated worksheet

Functions lesson with differentiated worksheet

A lesson on functions along with exam questions, differentiated questions and answers, assessment opportunities and a more complex differentiated worksheet aimed at challenging the SOMA/higher ability students. Covers substituting into basic and complex functions, solving linear, quadratic and algebraic functions and composite functions. Really great resource.

Transformation of Functions (Treasure Hunt)

Transformation of Functions (Treasure Hunt)

This activity helps to strengthen students' skills in substituting one algebraic expression into another. Unlike most Treasure Hunts, this one has the added feature that the answers give an encrypted clue. Deciphering this clue reveals where the treasure is hidden! [CLICK HERE] for a list of similar style Treasure Hunts on more than 20 other topics. -- A Treasure Hunt is a great activity which children love. They are ideal for revision, starters or plenaries. They are a really great way to get students to answer questions quickly and enjoy doing so. These question cards have been prepared in two sizes. This allows them to be easily used for a whole class activity, group work or by individuals. The loop cards are particularly helpful during interventions.
