Calculus AB/BC - Derivative Rules: Constant, Sum, Difference, and ​Constant Multiple

Use derivatives to find equations of lines. Pupils learn more rules to use as shortcuts to find derivatives. Using the rules, they find the equations of the tangent line and the normal line at a given point. Scholars then apply the new rules to find whether a function is differential or not at a given point and practice the knowledge gained with provided worksheets.
