Power Rule Lab
- Karen Collins
Click the radio button beside f(x) to show the graph. (1) Type Derivative[f(x)] in the input bar at the bottom to calculate and graph the first derivative. (2) Type Derivative [g(x)] to calculate and graph the second derivative. (3) RECORD the equations AND the graphs for each problem on your worksheet. Use the radio buttons beside each equation to turn the graph on or off to make for easier sketching. (4) From this point on, as you change f(x), the derivatives and the graphs will change. When complete, work in your groups to answer the questions on the lab sheet.
