March 17, 2008

Today's class went similar to the class last Friday. Mr. K assigned people into different groups of three or four students, each group having at least one AP Calculus student. He wants the non-AP students to learn from their peers and the AP students to apply what they've learned before. The first proof that was done was the derivative of the power function, but before that Mr. K refreshed our memory about the binomial theorem. Next we worked on the proof of the derivative of a constant times a function. Then, we applied what we know about limits to prove the derivative of sum and difference of functions. Thats about everything that happened in class today. The next scribe will be rusz.l.
