3. 3. 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.

4. 4. What are they used for?  Slope of a tangent  Can be used at any point  Helpful in physics  Applied to many areas of calculus
5. 5. Rate of Change
6. 6. Why do I have to learn aboutit?  Can be very helpful in physics  Huge part of calculus  Many professions require Calculus I
7. 7. Definition of Derivative
8. 8. Derivative Rules
9. 9. Starting with the basics
10. 10. Product Rule
11. 11. Physics
12. 12. Example
13. 13. Visual Example
14. 14. 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
