Teaching Math 5H: UNIT 3 Differentiation, Quarter I, Week 5

Teaching Math 5H
UNIT 3 Differentiation

Quarter I Week 5: 10/07-10/11
Out sick.... However, I did start using DropBox, see below!

Quarter I Week 4: 9/30-10/04
We started UNIT 3 about Differentiation! We derived the Product and Quotient Rules. We did all 6 Trig Rules. We started talking about the Chain Rule.

Quarter I Week 3: 9/23-9/27
We finished UNIT 2 with a test! Our last topic concerned the existence of the derivative. BTW, we start with UNIT 2 since UNIT 1 is just a review of PreCalculus. We did a bit of that in 106 and 107 on Conics and Polar Notation.

Quarter I Week 2: 9/16-9/20
We are almost finished with UNIT 2: Continuity and Differentiablility! We demostrated the Power Rule using the Definition of the Derivative as the limit of the Difference Quotient. We even started the Trig Rules!

Quarter I Week 1: 9/9-9/13
AP Calculus BC started with a preCalc review in the form of the topic of Conic Sections! This is a great topic to review Cartesian and Polar Coordinates, as well as some algebra, trig and TI89 usage!

YouTube Wednesdays this month are about Admiral Grace Murray Hopper! The first video is linked above as it's not on YouTube anymore, CBS had me remove it....

I know Fridays aren't YouTube Wednesdays, but I had to show the following filks about continuity and differentiability!

ScreenCasts and SmartNotes and Code, 
oh my:
Below, you will usually find ScreenCasts from this week. SmartNotes are from a previous year's TI89 based course. We don't code much in this class except for programming the TI89.

Well, that's all folks!
