LC19-38A Identifying the Derivative Leaving Cert Higher Level
IdentifyingtheDerivative - LeavingCertificateHigherLevel.
A one day course with Tony Hayes covering aspects of Strand 5, the Functions section of the Leaving Certificate Higher Level Mathematics Syllabus.
This course has previously been delivered in Athlone Education Centre on 09 Feb. 2019
The day will focus on
The meaning of the derivative of a function and its application to properties of the given function.
To begin with there will be a review of material from the Junior Cycle specifications in particular Section AF 7. d
- make connections between the shape of a graph and the story of a phenomenon, by looking at time/distance graphs.
Time will then be spent looking at
slope of a line as average velocity of a function between two given points.
the behaviour of a function in terms of
o increasing/decreasing.o positive negative.
o turning points
o inflection/saddle inflection
the slope of the tangent to a point on the graph of the function.
first/second derivatives as indicators of the behaviour of the original function.
There will be ample opportunity for participants to engage with the material by working through examples and there will be full worked solutions to all examples.
A pdf version of the presentation will be made available to all participants via e mail on completion of the course.
- Lunch will be provided.
