Visualizing Rates of Change in AP® Calculus

When: Tuesday, Sept. 12, 2023 | 7 p.m. Central time
Technology: TI-84 Plus family, TI‑Nspire™ CX technology
Presenters: Dennis Wilson, Janice Mitchener

Calculus is the branch of mathematics that deals with rates of change, so it is important for students to be able to visualize the relationships between a function and its derivative.

Join this webinar to learn ways of leveraging TI-Nspire™ CX II CAS and TI-84 Plus CE technology to help support students as they explore rates of change graphically, numerically and analytically. Specific content includes the relationship between average and instantaneous rates of change, the relationship of a function and its derivative functions, and the Mean Value Theorem.
