In the first example, instead of actually using the quotient rule, Sal rewrites the denominator as a negative exponent and uses the product rule. In subsequent examples, Sal shows, but does not prove, the derivative of several interesting functions including ex, ln x, sin x, cos x, and tan x.
What's the definition of the power of a quotient rule? You have a fraction that has variables and exponents in the numerator and the denominator, and the whole thing is to a power. Oh my! Don't cry! You can do this. Once you see the rule applied you will sigh with relief and be able to tackle any expressions like this.
In this derivatives instructional activity, students solve 11 short answer and graphing problems. Students find inflection points, increasing and decreasing intervals, maximums and minimums, and graph an exponential derivative. Students use the quotient rule to find the derivative.
