Unit 2: Derivatives introduction
1,100 possible mastery points
About this unitThe derivative of a function describes the function's instantaneous rate of change at a certain point. Another common interpretation is that the derivative gives us the slope of the line tangent to the function's graph at that point. Learn how these two interpretations describe the same thing and how we can define the derivative formally using... limits!
