Exploring the Landscape
Students determine the monotonicity and concavity properties of a function, then apply the First Derivative Test and draw conclusions about the first and second derivatives from these properties.

Finding max and min using first derivative test
In this derivative worksheet, students solve two multi part problems to discover the correlations between max/min on a graph and inflection points, the first derivative test, and slopes of tangent lines at the max/min points. This...

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 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...
