Extractions: Objectives: In this tutorial, we define what it means for a realtion to define a function implicitly and give an example. Then, using several examples, we demonstrate implicit differentiation which is a method for finding the derivative of a function defined implicitly. After working through these materials, the student should be able Modules: Definition. A relation F(x,y) = is said to define the function y = f(x) implicitly if, for x in the domain of f F(x,f(x)) = Discussion Using Flash Comment. Given a differentiable relation F(x,y) = which defines the differentiable function y = f(x) , it is usually possible to find the derivative f' even in the case when you cannot symbolically find f . The method of finding the derivative which is illustrated in the following examples is called implicit differentiation Examples

http://calculus.freehomepage.com/cal05.htm

Extractions: Please go to http://www.qcalculus.com/cal05.htm . Thanks. This will only be easy if you can follow the steps. Understanding it is nice too, but why waste your time with something so trivial as actually knowing what it is you are learning. In this section, you are taking a derivative, except the issue raised here is that you cannot always isolate y onto one side of your equation, making a different method necessary. Here is a typical example: = 2x + x y Actually, this ones a bit tough, I think. Anyway, you should already see that it is impossible to take a regular derivative. y is not a simple thing off to one side, and to isolate y off to one side would be difficult. So we are going to take a straight derivative of each or the 3 terms here, and then try to isolate y, which is much easier. That way we will have a derivative for the equation. One important thing to remember when doing implicit differentiation: The derivative of y is y. The derivative of x is taken in the normal way of a variable, so that the derivative of x is 1, as an example.

http://www-gap.dcs.st-and.ac.uk/~history/HistTopics/The_rise_of_calculus.html

Extractions: The main ideas which underpin the calculus developed over a very long period of time indeed. The first steps were taken by Greek mathematicians. To the Greeks numbers were ratios of integers so the number line had "holes" in it. They got round this difficulty by using lengths, areas and volumes in addition to numbers for, to the Greeks, not all lengths were numbers. Zeno of Elea , about 450 BC, gave a number of problems which were based on the infinite. For example he argued that motion is impossible:- If a body moves from A to B then before it reaches B it passes through the mid-point, say B of AB. Now to move to B it must first reach the mid-point B of AB . Continue this argument to see that A must move through an infinite number of distances and so cannot move. Leucippus Democritus and Antiphon all made contributions to the Greek method of exhaustion which was put on a scientific basis by Eudoxus about 370 BC. The method of exhaustion is so called because

http://www.krysstal.com/calculus.html

Extractions: Calculus is a very important branch of mathematics. It is a form of mathematics applied to continuous graphs (graphs without gaps). Calculus has two aspects: This essay introduces Differentiation The derivative allows us to calculate the slope or tangent of a graph at any point, P. The process by which a derivative is found is called Differentiation The graph below is a simple parabola whose equation is y = x The derivative is given the symbol dy/dx (pronounced d y by d x or dy dx ). The derivative is a function that gives the slope (tangent) of the graph at any point. The derivative measures the rate of change of y with respect to x . It describes in precise mathematical terms how y changes when x changes. This concept is very important in science. It can be shown that if y = x , then the derivative is given by dy/dx = 2x So for this curve, when x = 1, the slope is 2; the slope at x = 3 is 6.

http://metric2.ma.ic.ac.uk/differentiation/

Extractions: The differential calculus is the mathematical science of change . The ideas that underlie it began to be investigated over two thousand years ago, but the great leap forward came with Newton and Leibniz in the seventeenth century. Their groundbreaking work made the mathematical study of change a practical proposition for the first time, but the logical foundations of calculus remained shaky until the nineteenth century, when the field was finally placed on a firm footing. Because the calculus is so important, it is sometimes talked about in hushed, reverent tones. This can give the impression that it's fearsomely difficult. But it isn't; actually, the whole reason for its importance is that it makes life easy for us. The central idea, as far as the modern (that is, nineteenth-century) version of calculus is concerned, is that of limits. Principles of Differentiation. Techniques of Differentiation. Applications of Differentiation.

http://www.math.hawaii.edu/~lee/calculus/

Extractions: In my opinion, calculus is one of the major intellectual achievements of Western civilization - in fact of world civilization. Certainly it has had much more impact in shaping our world today than most of the works commonly included in a Western Civilization course books such as Descartes's Discourse on Method or The Prince by Machiavelli. But at most universities, we have taken this magnificent accomplishment of the human intellect and turned it into a boring course. Sawyer's little book What Is Calculus About? (Another book in the same vein, but more recent, is The Hitchhiker's Guide to Calculus by Michael Spivak.) For many of us mathematicians, calculus is far removed from what we see as interesting and important mathematics. It certainly has no obvious relevance to any of my own research, and if it weren't for the fact that I teach it, I would long ago have forgotten all the calculus I ever learned. But we should remember that calculus is not a mere ``service course.'' For students, calculus is the gateway to further mathematics. And aside from our obligation as faculty to make all our courses interesting, we should remember that if calculus doesn't seem like an interesting and worthwhile subject to students, then they are unlikely to see mathematics as an attractive subject to pursue further.

http://www.marxists.org/reference/archive/hegel/works/hl/hl274.htm

Extractions: Remark 2: The Purpose of the Differential Calculus Deduced from its Application In the previous Remark we considered on the one hand the specific nature of the notion of the infinitesimal which is used in the differential calculus, and on the other the basis of its introduction into the calculus; both are abstract determinations and therefore in themselves also easy. The so-called application, however, presents greater difficulties, but also the more interesting side; the elements of this concrete side are to be the object of this Remark. The whole method of the differential calculus is complete in the proposition that dxn = nx n dx , or ( f x + i - fx i P , that is, is equal to the coefficient of the first term of the binomial x + d , or x + 1, developed according to the powers of dx or the first stage of the task, the finding of the said differential, analytically, i.e. purely arithmetically, by the expansion of the function of the variable after this has received the form of a binomial by the addition of an increment; how it is that the second stage can be correct, namely the omission of all the terms except the first, of the series arising from the expansion. If all that were required were only this coefficient, then with its determination all that concerns the theory would, as we have said, be settled and done with in less than half an hour and the omission of the further terms of the series (with the determination of the first function, the determination of the second, third, etc., is also accomplished) far from causing any difficulty, would not come into question since they are completely irrelevant.
