Understand the concept of derivative geometrically, numerically, and analytically, and interpret the derivative as an instantaneous rate of change or as the slope of the tangent line.
Differential Calculus: Develop an understanding of the derivative as an instantaneous rate of change, using geometrical, numerical, and analytical methods. Use this definition to find derivatives of algebraic and transcendental functions and combinations of these functions (using, for example, sums, composites, and inverses). Find second and higher order derivatives. Understand and use the relationship between differentiability and continuity. Understand and apply the Mean Value Theorem. Find derivatives of algebraic, trigonometric, logarithmic, and exponential functions. Find derivatives of sums, products, and quotients, and composite and inverse functions. Find derivatives of higher order, and use logarithmic differentiation and the Mean Value Theorem.
