# Lesson Plan: Rate of Change and Derivatives Mathematics

This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to find the instantaneous rate of change for a function using derivatives and apply this in real-world problems.

#### Objectives

Students will be able to

• understand that the derivative is a function which describes the instantaneous rate of change of the function ,
• use differentiation to find in the context of finding the rate of change of ,
• evaluate the rate of change of at the point where by using differentiation and evaluating .

#### Prerequisites

Students should already be familiar with

• the definition of the derivative,
• rules of differentiation (power, product, and quotient chain),
• differentiation of real functions.

#### Exclusions

Students will not cover

• using the limit definition of the derivative,
• related rates problems.
