I heart these two calc problems

These were both AP Calculus sample questions for 2012.  And I just really like them:


  1. I like these questions too! If I were going to ask the first one, I might not do a multiple choice but ask student to shade all points for which the first and second deriv were neg.

    Simple, conceptual, nice. These are great. Thanks.

    1. Mmmm hmmm...that's a really good suggestion. I just left out the options of A-E, which made some of my students think that there may be more than one answer, and several of them choose both B and C.

  2. what are the answers?


Tell me what you think!
