Addendum – Find the tangent line equations
In this tutorial the students will revisit a previous tutorial where we found the equation to 2 tangent lines. The problem is that the equations are in a more complex form. The students will simplify the tangent line equations and verify their results using an online graphing calculator.
In the effort to simplify the equations the students will learn how to …
- Find common denominators
- Subtract fractions
