Calculus; Lesson #1 – An Introduction to Differentiation

In this tutorial we will be discussing the importance of differentiation and why we use it. This will allow students to understand when they need to differentiate and what they are finding by obtaining the derivative

Calculus; Lesson #2 – First Principles of Differentiation

In this tutorial we will be discussing the importance of the first principles of differentiation and what you get when we use it. This allows students to understand when to use first principles

Calculus; Lesson #5 -How do I know if I use Chain Rule, Product Rule or Quotient Rule?

In this tutorial we will be going through the difference of the chain rule to product to quotient. We will be understanding exactly when we use these methods of differentiation.

Calculus; Lesson #6 – Using the Chain Rule

In this tutorial we will be discussing how to use the chain rule. We are focusing on two major strategies (1) short cut (2) chain rule. Enjoy!

Calculus; Lesson #7 – Examples of the Chain Rule

In this tutorial we will be using the Chain rule in order to solve two problems.

Calculus; Lesson #8 -How to use the Product Rule

In this tutorial we will be using the Product rule to differentiate a function. After this video, you should be able to understand how to recognise when to apply the product rule – and how to obtain an answer.
