Differentiation from First Principles | |
Summary |
to find the gradient of a curve at a particular point, the gradient of the tangent at that point is found. the gradient function finds the gradient of a function at any point, for any value of x where the function is differentiable. the gradient function is sometimes called the derived function or the derivative. the process of finding the gradient function is is called differentiation. |
Key Skills |
