# Linear Motion (Type 2)

AP Questions Type 2: Linear Motion We continue the discussion of the various type questions on the AP Calculus Exams with linear motion questions. “A particle (or car, person, or bicycle) moves on a number line ….” These questions may give the position equation, the velocity equation (most often), or the acceleration equation of something…

# Unit 4 – Contextual Applications of the Derivative

Unit 4 covers rates of change in motion problems and other contexts, related rate problems, linear approximation, and L’Hospital’s Rule. (CED – 2019 p. 82 – 90). These topics account for about 10 – 15% of questions on the AB exam and 6 – 9% of the BC questions. You may want to consider teaching Unit…

Two of nine. Continuing the series started in my last post, this post looks at the AB Calculus 2021 exam question AB 2. The series looks at each question with the aim of showing ways to use the question in with your class as is or by adapting and expanding it.  Like most of the…
