OBJECTIVES : to identify the different rules of differentiation and distinguish one from the other; prove the different rules of differentiation using the increment method; find the derivative of an algebraic function using the basic rules of differentiation; and extend these basic rules to other “complex” algebraic functions.
DERIVATIVE USING FORMULAS The increment-method (four-step rule) of finding the derivative of a function gives us the basic procedures of differentiation. However these rules are laborious and tedious when the functions to be differentiated are “complex”, that is, functions with

Understanding of the theorems of differentiation is very important. This is the heart of differential calculus. All of the succeeding topics such as applications of derivatives, differentiation of transcendental functions etc. will be dependent on these theorems. Understanding of

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
