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,� 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.
Twelfth graders investigate the capabilities of the TI-89.  In this calculus lesson, 12th graders explore the parametric equation for a circle, for arc length of curves, and for trajectories.  Students investigate the symbolic and graphical representation of vectors.  Students use polar functions of investigate the area bounded by a curve.  Students investigate a 3D graphing application. 
Pupils explore natural logarithms.  In this calculus lesson, students investigate exponential growth and integral calculus which leads to the natural logarithm function. Pupils solve problems involving exponential growth. 
In this circuits worksheet learners complete a series of questions on equations, robotics and integration.  There is an answer sheet. 
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.
