Day 22 – Using the Limit Definition of the Derivative

P221

Today, we used the limit definition of the derivative to find some derivatives. Students worked on whiteboards, both the small ones and the ones on the walls. One of my favorite things is stepping back and looking at the crazy work that results from it. Next year, maybe I will show them a crazy whiteboard of limit definition stuff and say “THIS WILL MEAN SOMETHING TO YOU SOME DAY… OH, AND THAT DAY WILL BE IN LIKE TWO WEEKS.”
