2 Objectives: 1. Find the slope of a secant line to a curve through two given points. 2. Find the slope of a tangent line to a curve through a given point. 3. Compute the derivative, f’(a), for a given value of “a.” 4. Find the equation of the line tangent to a curve at a given point. 5. Find the derivative of linear and constant functions. 6. Estimate the derivative from a table of values. 7. Given an expression for the derivative, find the original function.
