This week we dove further into rules for derivatives. We learned the product rule, quotient rule, and others in order to calculate the derivative faster. We also were shown rules for trig functions which in my opinion were easier to use than the other rules. This whole lesson leading up to the quiz was actually pretty easy in my opinion. As long as you know the specific rules it is pretty simple to figure out any problem. Especially when you have functions that are long and to the seventh power for example. It makes life a little easier when you do not have to use f(x+h) – f(x)/h for problems such as those.
We also continued doing anti derivatives and finding higher order derivatives which are both super simple as well. This week we had a couple different homework assignments and worksheets but I was able to get everything done fast and I knew how to do a lot of what was on there. I am glad we are doing something fairly easy because it makes me not have to worry so much over this class and can concentrate on fun things like college applications. Im kidding obviously. In other exciting calc news, I redid my sheet of cardstock for tests and it looks nice. That is all.
