This activity allows students to discover the product rule.

During the Activity

This activity is designed for students who have learned the power rule but have not yet seen the product rule.

Students can work individually or in pairs. The initial size of the rectangle and the rates of change can be varied for different groups so that they are not all working with the same numbers.
