Building Mathematical Maturity in Calculus: Teaching Implicit Differentiation through a Review of Functions

  • Building Mathematical Maturity in Calculus: Teaching Implicit Differentiation through a Review of Functions

    Angela Hare, Doug Phillippy
    Identifies characteristics of mathematically maturity at the calculus level and provides a project focusing on implicit differentiation that is designed to build students' mathematical maturity by helping them connect calculus concepts with prerequisite material. Gives prelesson assignment and lesson outline with examples of student responses that indicate weak understanding of problems and their probable reasoning. Solutions are included.
