Project Title Build and Split Boxes method
Project Category Innovation
Abstract Chain rule differentiation is used extremely often. It shows up in various forms in other derivatives and integration. It confuses many students due to they have difficulty in recognizing composite function. Build and Split Boxes method (BSBM) is used to memorize basic calculus facts and reduce the likelihood of making mistake during differentiation. Two sections are applied. First section, students were asked to build one big box function from three different small size box functions. Second section, students were asked to split one big box function into different small size box functions, and then differentiate each of small box functions. During tests and quizzes, students had shown their BSBM to find the solution, able to memorize basic calculus facts, and manage to reduce mistake while performing chain rule differentiation.
