Advanced Related Rates and the Mean Value Theorem (Part 2 of 4)

Print Lesson

Objective

SWBAT model and solve related rates problems with variable angles and involving non-right triangles. SWBAT apply differentiation to find values satisfying the Mean Value Theorem.

Big Idea

The Mean Value Theorem is one of the most important in all of calculus. Today we begin to make its importance obvious to students.
