Calculus: Derivative of x^(x^x)
Sal starts with an example of finding dy/dx of y = x2 and builds to showing the solution to the more complicated implicit differentiation problem of finding the derivative of y in terms of x of y = x ^ x ^ x .

Extreme Derivative Word Problem (advanced)
Sal shows the complex solution to a challenging derivative problem about ï¿½normalinesï¿½. This is probably beyond the scope of most first year calculus students but might be an interesting problem to show how complex these problems can...

Calculus: Derivatives 2.5 (new HD version)
By defining the formal definition of a derivative, fï¿½(x), Sal is able to find the general form of the derivate function for the example f(x) = x2. He continues to stress the importance of an intuitive understanding of derivative...

Calculus: Derivatives 2 (new HD version)
Sal continues where he left off with the last video, ï¿½Derivatives 1,ï¿½ by looking at the equation y = x2 and examining the slope of the secant line at a specific point. He continues with defining the limit as _x approaches zero to get...

Calculus: Derivatives 1 (new HD version)
Sal defines the term derivative by taking the listener on a well-organized tour of slope. First, he reviews the concept of slope of a line from algebra, then extends this idea to look at the slope of the curve by first examining a secant...
