MCV4U – February 19, 2016

PLEASE NOTE:  THE STUDENTS WILL BE HAVING A UNIT TEST ON MONDAY FEBRUARY 22 ON ALL OF THE CONTENT FROM FEBRURARY 4 TO FEBRUARY 17.

ALSO TO NOTE: THE STUDENTS WILL BE HAVING A THINKING AND INQUIRY ASSIGNMENT ON WEDNESDAY FEBRUARY 24 ON THE CONTENT FROM FEBRUARY 4 TO FEBRUARY 17.

I began the class today by telling the students that I would be doing a lesson today on finding the original function when they are given the derivative (related to our lesson we did yesterday).  This is called the anti-derivative or the indefinite integral.  I then gave the students a handout titled “MCV4U – Anti-Derivatives or Indefinite Integrals ”.  I told the students that there were some things from the handout I would just be going over and that they would not have to fill anything in (I suggested they highlight important concepts).  For the examples that required students to fill things in, I put it up on the digital projector and then went over it with the students.  Once we finished the lesson, I then told the students to work on the homework I assigned for today (Worksheet letters a to h).  Students are encouraged to email me if they have any questions from the homework ahead of time (abawa@office.ldcsb.on.ca).

Below you will find a copies of the handouts/worksheets that were distributed/assigned in today’s class.

MCV4U – Anti-Derivatives or Indefinite Integrals (filled-in) (I put up the answers to the handout using the black board and the digital projector and then we went over them.)

Anti-derivatives Worksheet with answers (The students are to complete letters a to h from this worksheet.)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oDAKKQuBtDo (This is a very short video that I showed the students at the start of class from YouTube.  The clip is from the movie “Mean Girls” related to limits.)

When are functions not differentiable? (Resource) (I showed this to the students in class today.  We talked briefly about how the derivative formula relates to the definition of a limit/first principles.)

Reminder for Unit Test on Monday February 22:

To review for the test, redo class examples, complete homework, independently redo homework questions which you initially had difficulty with and if time they can do the following questions:  pg 64 #1d,2,4a,5,6(a,b),7,8 (note answers to 8b(iii and iv) should be limits do not exist….textbook has only given the reason why those limits do not exist), 9,10,11, 12(a,c) and pg 66 #2 (note the answer to #1 should discuss cusp, not the answer to #2),5,6 and 7
