## Cambridge Pre-U Math Short Course: Differentiation - Chapter Summary

This chapter outlines concepts you need to know about differentiation to correctly answer questions on the final assessment for the Cambridge Pre-U Math Short Course. The text and video lessons focus on topics like graphical representations, the instantaneous rate of change and the properties of derivatives. Review how to write derivatives and apply the distributive type rule. By the time you complete the chapter, you should be able to:

• Understand the rate of change, including average and instantaneous
• Define, graph and calculate derivatives
• Explain the concept of differentiability
• Calculate limits to find a derivative
• Find global maximum and minimum values with differentiation
• Solve problems with logarithms and natural base e
