Computing Derivatives Terms
Get down with the lingo
Implicit DifferentiationDifferentiation of an equation in which the dependent variable doesn't have a side of the equation all to itself.
Derivative Of A FunctionThe measurement of how f(x) changes at a point x.
Slope Of A LineThe change in the y-value of the line for a unit change in the x value.
Average Rate Of ChangeThe change in the function f(x) as x changes over an interval [a, b].
Instantaneous Rate Of ChangeThe change in the function f(x) at a point x.
Secant LineA line joining two points on the graph of a function.
Tangent LineA line that touches the graph of a function f(x) at a point.
DifferentiabilityIf the limit exists, the function f(x) is differentiable at x = a.
VectorA mathematical structure that has both magnitude and direction, represented by an ordered pair of components.
Magnitude Of A VectorThe length of a vector, denoted by || ||.
Direction Of A VectorThe counter-clockwise angle from the positive x-axis to the vector.
