Storyboard Text

  • Maria and Richard return to practicing!
  • When all of a sudden . . .
  • Maria, help me corner him!
  • Furiously, Richard skates away from Maria at the origin to get to the hockey player retrieving the puck. He moves along his path at a rate of 3 units per second and stops at x = pi/3.
  • In order to corner him, the two have to determine the rate of change of the angle at pi/3. To do so, take the derivative of Richard's path, set it equal to his rate of change, and solve for x'.
  • Don't forget chain rule!! This means the derivative of Richard's path becomes -2sinx * x'.
  • Thanks to Calc BC, the hockey players never scheduled a practice at the same time as the figure skaters again!
