In this video, Sal takes on the challenge of proving both the derivative of ln x = 1/x and of ex = ex, showing that no circular logic is used in the proof.  It contains a clearer version of both proofs shown in the videos titled, _Proof d/dx e^x = e^x” and _Proof: d/dx (ln x) = 1/x.”
Using the derivative of ln x, the chain rule, and the definition of a limit, Sal shows a proof that derivative of ex = ex. Note: The video titled "Proof of Derivatives of Ln(x) and e^x,Ó has a clearer explanation of this proof.
Using a specific example, Sal shows how to find the equation of a tangent line to a given function at a specific point. Specifically, he solves the problem of finding the tangent line to the function f(x) = xex at x = 1. This problem provides a review of the product rule, slope-intercept form of a line, and steps for finding the equation of a line. It also, provides a nice visual understanding of the problem by graphing both the original equation and the found tangent line.
In this calculus worksheet, students solve 10 different problems that include determining the first derivative in each. First, they apply properties of logarithmic functions to expand the right side of each equation. Then, students differentiate both sides with respect to x,using the chain rule on the left side and the product rule on the right. In addition, they multiply both sides by y and substitute.
In this differentiation worksheet, students use differentiation rules to solve given functions. This four-page worksheet contains 8 problems.
Directions are written to solve a related rate problem step by step. There are five example problems to practice solving for related rates.  Use of the Chain Rule and/or implicit differentiation is one of the key steps to solving these word problems.
Students investigate an article on local linearity. In this calculus lesson, students read about the application of math in the real world. They gain insight from the teachers view of how to teach and relate the topic to the real world.
