Unit 4 Contextual Applicationsap Calculus
Posted By admin On 28/12/21Unit 4 begins by developing understanding of average and instantaneous rates of change in problems involving motion. The unit then identifies differentiation as a common underlying structure on which to build understanding of change in a variety of contexts.

4.1 Interpreting the Meaning of the Derivative in Context LEARNING OBJECTIVE CHA-3.A Interpret the meaning of a derivative in context. | CHA-3.A.1 The derivative of a function can be interpreted as the instantaneous rate of change with respect to its independent variable. |
CHA-3.A.2 The derivative can be used to express information about rates of change in applied contexts. | |
CHA-3.A.3 The unit for is the unit for f divided by the unit for x. |

4.4 Introduction to Related Rates LEARNING OBJECTIVE CHA-3.D Calculate related rates in applied contexts. | CHA-3.D.1 The chain rule is the basis for differentiating variables in a related rates problem with respect to the same independent variable. |
CHA-3.D.2 Other differentiation rules, such as the product rule and the quotient rule, may also be necessary to differentiate all variables with respect to the same independent variable. |

4.6 Approximating Values of a Function Using Local Linearity and Linearization LEARNING OBJECTIVE CHA-3.F Approximate a value on a curve using the equation of a tangent line. | CHA-3.F.1 The tangent line is the graph of a locally linear approximation of the function near the point of tangency. |
CHA-3.F.2 For a tangent line approximation, the function’s behavior near the point of tangency may determine whether a tangent line value is an underestimate or an overestimate of the corresponding function value. |

4.7 Using L’Hospital’s Rule for Determining Limits of Indeterminate Forms LEARNING OBJECTIVE LIM-4.A Determine limits of functions that result in indeterminate forms. | LIM-4.A.1 When the ratio of two functions tends to or in the limit, such forms are said to be indeterminate. |
LIM-4.A.2 Limits of the indeterminate forms or may be evaluated using L’Hospital’s Rule. |
EXCLUSION STATEMENT: There are many other indeterminate forms, such as , for example, but these will not be assessed on either the AP Calculus AB or BC Exam. However, teachers may include these topics, if time permits.
