Linear Approximation - 2

Published on 10/24/2011

Activity Overview

Students graph the functions, construct the tangent line at a point, and find an estimate from a linear approximation.

Key Steps

  • Image

    Students will graph the functions, construct the tangent line at a point, and find an estimate from a linear approximation.

  • Image

    Students will then determine whether the estimate is an overestimate or an underestimate, and find an interval for a desired accuracy.
