Next week I'll be working with my students to figure out these two derivatives. I don't want them taking notes on all the steps, so I made a handout that reflects what I think we'll do in class. I'm embarrassed to admit how many hours I put into this. The good thing is that I know the details of these proofs a lot better after having typed this out.
I used Word with MathType, which has usually looked fine to me. I'm starting to wish I knew LaTex. (It's definitely on the list of technology I want to learn soon.) I used Geogebra for diagrams, took snapshots using Jing, and pulled the .png files into my Word doc. There's probably a better way to do that too.
First is an estimation activity:
Then here is the complete proof I typed up.
What would you do differently?
*This is my first time using scribd in a very long time. I hope these are useful to someone. How do I get it to put my name after 'by', and more importantly, how do I get the documents to show up in my blog post?
