Collections Introduction to differential calculus

TLF ID R10711

This collection of 17 digital curriculum resources (all learning objects) is organised into three sections: rates of change; differential calculus; and review of differential calculus via three learning objects. Students explore rates of change through liquid-pouring activities, and are introduced to the gradient of secants for linear, quadratic, cubic and quartic equations by using distance-time graphs and reducing time intervals to highlight the relationship between average and instantaneous velocity. The collection also introduces the derivative, using first principles for all power functions. It enables students to investigate the relationships between power functions and their derivatives.
