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...

Proofs of Derivatives of Ln(x) and e6x
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...

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...
