PLEASE 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 the chain rule which is related to the power rule. I then gave the students a handout titled “MCV4U – The Chain Rule”. 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 I went over the examples using the projector and the black board. Once we finished the lesson, I then told the students to work on the homework I assigned for today (Read Pg 55 to 57 then do Pg 59 #7 & do Pg 117 #1 to 8). Students are encouraged to email me if they have any questions from the homework ahead of time (abawa@).
Below you will find a copies of the handouts/worksheets that were distributed/assigned in today’s class.
Communications Assignment (Limits) Exemplars (I gave the students back their marked communications assignment which they wrote on Feb 11. I talked about their marks and then showed them a few student exemplars of what a level 4 would look like.)

MCV4U – The Chain Rule (filled-in) (I put up the answers to the examples using the black board and digital projector. Some of the students also helped me put some of the answers up on the board and then we checked them as a class.)
When are functions not differentiable? (Resource) (This sheet is related to the material covered on page 55 to 57 of the textbook. The students are to look this over and then try page 59 #7.)
When is a function not differentiable? (This is related to the resource above. The video is about 21 minutes long, but the students can skim through the video to get to the examples.)
