It may take a bit of effort to prepare, but I can see how useful that would be, if for nothing else than purely quicker recognition. And that in itself is useful when it comes to testing!Shaunhttp://www.thenumerist.comnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-7806043650549721218.post-31289374209081545422013-10-06T16:29:57.788-05:002013-10-06T16:29:57.788-05:00Please send it my way when you get a chance!

I used desmos to draw the graphs (struggled to get the right labels on the x-axis), and jing to save them. I can email you my handout if you want, but your stuff is nicer.Sue VanHattumhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/10237941346154683902noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-7806043650549721218.post-4611617507587340262013-10-02T22:22:37.782-05:002013-10-02T22:22:37.782-05:00Maybe I'll make my own - as a handout.

I remember reading your handout for the derivative of sine and thought it was awesome. I should use it as a follow up--especially for my more advanced kids.<br /><br />Just as a warning--I included the the equations on the bottom of the cards, which would probably be a dead give away if your students already know their derivative formulas...so you may want to chop that part off the cards. :) Let me know how it goes!Rebecka Petersonhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/12227797437296056645noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-7806043650549721218.post-68675477392215978612013-10-02T14:40:02.671-05:002013-10-02T14:40:02.671-05:00My calculus course being at college, I suppose it ...My calculus course being at college, I suppose it makes sense I prove more with them. I made a <a href="http://mathmamawrites.blogspot.com/2013/02/derivatives-of-sine-and-cosine.html" rel="nofollow">4-page handout</a> proving that derivative of sine is cosine. They fought their way through that jungle admirably well.<br /><br />I like these cards. I want to use them. Maybe on Thursday we can use this as a review activity for the upcoming test.Sue VanHattumhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/10237941346154683902noreply@blogger.com
