The two main branchesof calculusBY… MADDISON BAILEY
What is calculus?
Differential CalculusDifferential calculus is one side of calculus, the part concerned withcontinuous change and its applications.In calculus, we are interested in finding the slope of a curve
How to solve for the curvefor the red point, we will use the same formula that we used in Algebra--the slopeformulaΔyΔxHowever, we are going to make the blue and red points extremely close to eachother. The key is, when the blue point is infinitesimally close to the red point, thecurve becomes a straight line andΔyΔxwill then give us an accurate slope.
Differential Calculus in the real worldVelocity and Acceleration are just two real world examples of calculus in
