# Lesson Plan: Antiderivatives Mathematics • 12th Grade

This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to find the antiderivative of a function. The antiderivative of a function š(š„) is the function š¹(š„) where š¹ā²(š„) = š(š„).

#### Objectives

Students will be able to

• recognize and use notation for antiderivatives,
• understand that the antiderivative is the inverse of the derivative,
• understand that there are an infinite number of antiderivatives to a given function, denoted by the addition of a constant, C,
• find the general form for the antiderivatives of a function,
• find a specific antiderivative of a function (defining the constant, C) when given sufficient boundary conditions.

#### Prerequisites

Students should already be familiar with

• derivatives,
• differentiation,
• the rules of differentiation (product, quotient, chain, etc.).

#### Exclusions

Students will not cover

• integration.
