Calculus Graphical Organizer

Okay little Calculus Kidlets, maybe THIS will settle things in your mind.

After reading my end-of-semester surveys, too many students were mixing up what to do when and why when finding the maximums and minimums of functions. I created this graphical organizer to put in their notebooks. This is how I picture it in my head and how I remember it, so maybe it will help some students.

  5. I pinnned this graphic from your blog post 2 years ago to my Pinterest Board for Statistics and Data, and it continues to be one of my most re-pinned pins. I teach Statistics and was thinking about using your format for similar purposes, like when to use various statistical techniques, etc. I love your blog and frequently find useful ideas here, thanks!
