Limits and the Difference Quotient!
We followed this discussion on Limits with the introCALC UNIT02 Difference Quotient and describing what a Derivative is. We played around with Continuity and Differentiability. We differentiated several functions including: Polynomial, Rational and Trigonometric. We used the Binomial Expansion Theorem to demonstrate the Power Rule for Derivatives. We even found the Derivative of abs(x), sin(x), cos(x) and e^x!
Our next unit, introCALC UNIT03, will be on Differentiation Rules such as: Product Rule, Quotient Rule and Chain Rule!
