    11/4

    Today we reviewed MVT, Min max on closed domains and finding absolute minimums and maximums over the entire domain of a function

    Notes

     

    11/5

    Today we introduced the idea of inflection points and concavity

    Notes

     

    11/6

    Today we quickly stated how the second derivative helps determine when a critical point is a local min or max. 

    Notes

    We then worked through Ap classroom

     

    11/7

    Today we quizzed on probability and combining random variables. We then quickly introduced the idea of the binomial distribution and probability equation

  • Week 3: 10/28-11/1

    Posted by David Rau on 10/28/2019

    10/28

    Today we talked about local linearity, the mean value theorem, and critical points

    Notes

     

    10/29

    Today we talked about critical points some more and introduced intervals of increasing and decreasing

    Notes

     

    10/30

    Today we talked about finding intervals of increasing and decreasing further. 

    Notes

     

    11/1

    Today we took a nasty quiz and then working on finding relative minimums and maximums as well as absolute min and max's on closed intervals

  • Week 2: 10/21-10/25

    Posted by David Rau on 10/21/2019

    10/21

    Today we talked about related rates that involve the Pythagorean Theorem

    Notes

     

    10/22

    Today we talked about the crazy related rates

    Notes

     

    Quiz Wednesday on Related Rates

     

     

    10/25

    Today I'm out of town but I know each of you are totally capable of working through these Khan assignments. 

    The preffered order of completion should be: 

    1. Approximation with local linearity

    2. Using mean value theorem

    3. Find critical points

    4. increasing/Decreasing intervals

    5. Relative minima/maxima

    6.  Absolute min max on closed intervals

    7. Concavity intro

    8. Inflection points intro

    9. Find inflection points

  • Week 1: 10/14-10/18

    Posted by David Rau on 10/14/2019

    10/11

    today we went over a lot of interpretations of derivatives and introduced related rates

    Notes

     

    10/14 NO SCHOOL

     

    10/15

    Today we recapped and tried a few more problems from Friday

    Notes

     

    10/18

    Today we got into related rates in which some problems have one moving variable, and some problems have more than one.
