Formal Definition of the Derivative

Howdy, fellow AP Calc teachers!  You know those derivative questions on the AP exam that are disguised as limits?  Here's a worksheet to help students be able to recognize these questions and hopefully gain some fluency in moving from one form to the other.

I gave this before the kids learned any shortcut rules.  After they learned the rules, they filled in the answer column.


  1. Rebecka,

    I thought I needed to stop by and let you know, once again, how amazing your blog posts are. I LOVE this worksheet and the Local Linearity activity you recently posted. I've been secretly stealing things from you, and I thought it was time for a confession.

    Keep up the great work!!!
