About

This site is dedicated to some multiple choice games for derivatives. Each derivative rule has a short powerpoint video and then a game you can play to practice. You can play by yourself or with others. (At the moment you must both physically be in the same room and be on the same computer.) You take turns within a specified time interval, usually 2, 3 or 5 minutes is good, and the winner is the one with the highest final points. Right answers get points added and wrong answers have points taken away.

You should play them sequentially: start with all of the Power Rule games, then go to the Fundamental Derivatives and play that enough to the point you have those memorized. Next proceed to the Constant Multiple, Sum and Difference rules. These are ways you can combine the functions in the previous pages. Next do the Product Rule and the Quotient Rule. Finally look at the Chain Rule.
