Equation of a Tangent Line
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.

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.
