Today’s lesson is the last in this series on related rates and the Mean Value Theorem. Based on your observations of students’ work, continue reviewing related rates and Mean Value Theorem problems that students most need to practice. You might select problems from AP review books, supplemental textbook resources, or other online sources. The Redbook Notes online text from the University of Toronto has an extensive selection of related rates problems that you might use.
In culminating lessons like these, I like to feature students’ work samples under the document camera for all students to analyze. So as students are working in class, monitor students’ work for work samples that can serve as influential learning opportunities for the whole class.
