Graphic Organizer/Worksheet

Description:

To learn the alternate definition of a derivative at a point, students will plug the f=sqrt into the definition.  With algebra techniques like either the difference of squares or rationalizing the numerator, they will discover the derivative.  This worksheet should be given to groups of 3 or 4 to discuss their way through it and understand it both graphically & analytically.  Hat tip to the works of Paul Foerster!
