Advanced Related Rates and the Mean Value Theorem (Part 3 of 4)

# Advanced Related Rates and the Mean Value Theorem (Part 3 of 4)

Unit 5: Applications of Differentiation, Part 2

Lesson 7 of 8

Lesson 7 of 8

## Objective: SWBAT model and solve related rates problems. SWBAT solve problems involving the Mean Value Theorem.

## Big Idea: How might the Mean Value Theorem be applied on the AP exam? Students will make sense of and work through a released FRQ involving the MVT.

Subject(s):

Math, Mean Value Theorem, Precalculus and Calculus, Differentiation, modeling, calculus ab, Related Rates, calculus, AP Calculus, AP Calculus AB

#### Setting the Stage

*3 min*

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.
