The big idea of differential calculus is the concept of the derivative, which essentially gives us the direction, or rate of change, of a function at any of its points. Learn all about derivatives and how to find them here.
A brief introduction to differential calculus
How would you like to follow in the footsteps of Euclid and Archimedes? Would you like to be able to determine precisely how fast Usain Bolt is accelerating exactly 2 seconds after the starting gun? Differential calculus deals with the study of the rates at which quantities change. It is one of the two principal areas of calculus (integration being the other).
