Rules for differentiation
Differentiation and antidifferentiation of polynomials
Year 11
So, we've spent time looking at the ideas behind Differentiation from First Principles and have decided that this is a very long way to do something. How would we be able to answer questions like that all the time! So, thankfully this video lets you know about the rules for differentiation which make it much easier. Oh! Don't worry. We deal with calculus too. And some derivatives. Not only does the video look at the "quick rules" for differentiation, but we look at how to use the CAS to differentiate and solve equations. Forwards and backwards! One of the awesome things about differentiation. Oh, and we have a look at some bee's knees (13:44). Or something like that! And my awesome dog, Zero, comes back into the video (5:40)
