Proof: d/dx(ln x)=1/x

For Students 11th - Higher Ed
Using the definition of a limit, various properties of logarithms, and a definition of e, Sal shows the proof of derivative of ln x = 1/x. Note: The video titled "Proof of Derivatives of Ln(x) and e^x,Ó has a clearer explanation of this...

Proof: d/dx(e^x) = e6x

For Students 11th - Higher Ed
Using the derivative of ln x, the chain rule, and the definition of a limit, Sal shows a proof that derivative of ex = ex. Note: The video titled "Proof of Derivatives of Ln(x) and e^x,Ó has a clearer explanation of this proof.

Proof: cos(a+b)=(cos a)(cos b)-(sin a)(sin b)

For Students 10th - 12th
Using a similar method that he used to prove the sum of angles formula for sine, Sal shows the proof of the cosine sum of angles formula, cos (a+ b) = cos (a) cos (b) - sin (a) sin (b). This proof also uses the SOH-CAH-TOA model and some...

Proof: A(logB) = log (B^A), log A - log B = log (A/B)

For Students 9th - 12th
Here the proofs for two logarithm properties are shown. First, the Power Property of Logarithms is proved using the definition of a logarithm and the rules of exponents and then, the Quotient Property is proved is a similar fashion.

Patterns in Sequences 2

For Students 6th - 9th
This video looks again at finding the algebraic pattern in sequences. In the example, we are looking at a figure where a number of toothpicks (or lines) are added each time, and you need to find how many toothpicks will be in the 50th...

Patterns in Sequences 1

For Students 6th - 9th
Faced with a series of numbers we need to find the next few values of the sequence. This short video shows an example of finding the next values in a sequence where we need to find the pattern of adding a specific number each time to...

Parallel Lines 2

For Students 7th - 9th
Can you tell, algebraically, if three lines are parallel? In this video, Sal demonstrates how to rewrite linear equations in slope-intercept form and compare the slope of each line.

Parabola Focus and Directrix 1

For Students 10th - 12th
Starting with a point (focus) and a line below the point (directrix), in this video, Sal tries to find the set of all points (locus) equidistant to the point and the line. He shows, using the distance formula, that indeed, we have an...

Introduction to Logarithms Properties

For Students 7th - 9th
Sal gets to the heart of the matter in this video, clarifying that it's important to understand math "so you can actually apply it in life later on and not have relearn everything every time." True to his word, Sal demonstrates ways to...

Introduction to Limits (HD)

For Teachers 11th - Higher Ed
Sal begins his explanation of limits with a few basic examples and takes a more intuitive point of view before looking at a formal mathematical definition in later videos. He starts by introducing the notation for limits and describes...

Introduction to Interest

For Students 10th - 12th
Here is a simple tutorial on the difference between simple and compound interest. In it, Sal describes what interest is, defines the vocabulary of principle and interest rate. He also models year-by-year the amount of money owed under...

Introduction to Function Inverses

For Students 10th - 12th
Starting from a brief look at functions and the mapping of domains to ranges, Sal starts out with an intuitive sense of what a function inverse is. He then, using an example, shows how to find the inverse of a function and also shows how...

Identifying Conics 2

For Students 10th - 12th
In this video, Sal shows again how to write an equation of a conic section in standard form and identify the conic section it represents. This time, his example is of a hyperbola (not centered at the origin), which he also graphs.
