My name is Luke. So far of all the classes I’ve taken one of my favorite is calculus. One of the parts that I found interesting was when we looked at graphs of functions and matched them with graphs of their derivatives. For example finding the local max and mins of the graphs and then seeing that these values are where the derivative of that function equals zero.
Here is a link that uses the derivatives to graph the original function but the idea is same.
Here is a link that explains what max and mins are and how they are related to critical points of functions which can be found using differentiation.
An example of a derivative would be:
