### About this unit

Derivatives describe the rate of change of quantities. This becomes very useful when solving various problems that are related to rates of change in applied, real-world, situations. Also learn how to apply derivatives to approximate function values and find limits using L’Hôpital’s rule.AP® is a registered trademark of the College Board, which has not reviewed this resource.
