#### In-Class Help Requests

Standard(s)
• APC.5
• Investigate derivatives presented in graphic, numerical, and analytic contexts and the relationship between continuity and differentiability.
• The derivative will be defined as the limit of the difference quotient and interpreted as an instantaneous rate of change.
• APC.6
• ​The student will investigate the derivative at a point on a curve.
• Includes:
• finding the slope of a curve at a point, including points at which the tangent is vertical and points at which there are no tangents
• using local linear approximation to find the slope of a tangent line to a curve at the point
• ​defining instantaneous rate of change as the limit of average rate of change
• approximating rate of change from graphs and tables of values.
• APC.9
• Apply formulas to find derivatives.
• Includes:
• derivatives of algebraic, trigonometric, exponential, logarithmic, and inverse trigonometric functions
• derivations of sums, products, quotients, inverses, and composites (chain rule) of elementary functions
• derivatives of implicitly defined functions
