Description:

<p>To learn the alternate definition of a derivative at a point, students will plug the f<img src="/xwiki/resources/icons/silk/cancel.gif" class="wikimodel-freestanding" alt="cancel"/>=sqrt<img src="/xwiki/resources/icons/silk/cancel.gif" class="wikimodel-freestanding" alt="cancel"/>&nbsp;into the definition. &nbsp;With algebra techniques like either the difference of squares or rationalizing the numerator, they will discover the derivative. &nbsp;This worksheet should be given to groups of 3 or 4 to discuss their way through it and understand it both graphically &amp; analytically. &nbsp;Hat tip to the works of Paul Foerster!</p>
