  • Textbook Definition Type of Limit Slope of a tangent Velocity/Rate of change Source: Stewart, James. "Chapter 2." Essential Calculus. Belmont, CA: Thomson Brooks/Cole, 2007. 73. Print Photo Source: Ptwo. 122. 2009. Photograph. Flickr. (URL: http://www.flickr.com/photos/ptwo/3164159940/)
  • Where did derivatives come from?  Calculus has been around for centuries  Newton and Leibniz “invented” calculus  Newton’s laws of physics explained rate of change Source: Schechter, Eric.

  • What are they used for?  Slope of a tangent  Can be used at any point  Helpful in physics  Applied to many areas of calculus
  • Rate of Change
  • Why do I have to learn aboutit?  Can be very helpful in physics  Huge part of calculus  Many professions require Calculus I
  • Definition of Derivative
  • Derivative Rules
  • Starting with the basics
  • Product Rule
  • Physics
  • Example
  • Visual Example
  • Conclusion of Derivatives  Fundamental to calculus  Fundamental to physics  Physicists “invented” calculus  Several rules make it easier There is much more to calculus than what I have showed you
