The Candy-Coated World of Calculus. Boost calculus confidence with this dynamic and engaging series that takes students through limits, graphing, derivatives, integrals and more. Fast-paced and full of information, this series will aid retention of key concepts with an easy-to-follow pace and repeated reviews of key concepts. Help your students grasp even the most perplexing functions! The DVD Super Pack contains Modules 1 through 9 plus companion CD-ROM.Module 1: Calculus Basics
The Standard Deviants answer a question that has baffled humanity since...oh, about 1700: What is calculus? The two men who created calculus, Newton and Leibniz, aren't around to explain it to you, so the Standard Deviants are going to do the job instead. Plus, we'll review the basics of algebra, graphs, functions and limits. Module 2: Limits
The sky's the limit...on the types of limits the Standard Deviants are going to show you. But just as you think you've reached your limit on limits, we'll boldly go off into infinity!Module 3: Derivatives
What is an effect, the root of a word, a synonym for "credited" and also a famous mathematical term? The answer: a derivative. The Standard Deviants are going to focus on the derivative's celebrity status in math as the numero uno rate of change.Module 4: Work-Saving Rules
You can have your work cut out for you finding derivatives and tangents. The Standard Deviants can lessen your workload with some rules that will make life easier. Rules that make life easier: The power rule, E rule and natural log rule will have you plotting points and drawing curves in no time flat.Module 5: Finding Derivatives
The Standard Deviants give you a few more rules to help you survive, thrive and derive in the calculus jungle. The product rule, quotient rule, and chain rule will help you find derivatives - no matter what shape or size they are!Module 6: Derivative Applications
Is your brain drained? Do you want a little review? You got it. The Standard Deviants go over all the major concepts and formulas from the first five programs and make sure all this calculus know-how sticks in your head. Then we'll discuss applications of derivatives, like critical points, functions, and derivative tests.Module 7: Figuring Out Curves
There are curves that go back and forth, increase and decrease and never seem to stand still. How does one find their extrema? Are the curves concave up or concave down? We'll tackle these questions and many more! Module 8: Practical Applications
See how calculus saves the day, no matter what the problem. The Standard Deviants figure out the cheapest sized delivery box for Uncle Skippy's premium edible dirt business, find the instantaneous velocity of a Volkswagen Beetle being chased by stampeding elephants and see how far a chicken can throw an egg.Module 9: The Anti-Derivative
Go against the grain as the Standard Deviants tackle the anti-derivative! Suddenly everything is reversed! Pigs can fly, lunch is free, money grows on trees and beggars can be choosers. How does one find the anti-derivative? With a little process called integration.Calculus Companion CD
