Playing Nice with the Mean Value Theorem

Explore the concept of average rate of change while focusing on conceptual understanding using dynamic graphical explorations. This conceptual understanding will serve as a foundation for discovering the conclusion of the mean value theorem in the context of the race between the tortoise and the hare. With the conclusion in mind, attendees will explore the necessary conditions required for the conclusion to be met.
