Lesson 7 of 8
Objective: SWBAT model and solve related rates problems. SWBAT solve problems involving the Mean Value Theorem.
Warm-up and Homework Review
Setting the Stage
The In The Classroom (page 3) file contains the same runners problem from yesterday’s class (See Lesson Plan, (part 2 of 4), page 2). Project this problem again, and remind students how we adapted it for understanding the Mean Value Theorem. Keeping a small number of really good examples fresh in students’ minds can be very effective at increasing retention and understanding of key ideas (focal points) of the course.
