Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, you will learn about notations of derivatives, including prime and Leibniz notation. The video also covers how to use the definition of the derivative to find the algebraic rule for transforming a function into its derivative. You will also discover the power rule for derivatives, which is a rule for transforming power functions into their derivatives. The video also introduces Wolfram Alpha as a tool that can be used to find derivatives and simplify algebraic expressions.

Lesson Description:

Understand clearly prime and Leibniz notation as ways of indicating the derivative of functions symbolically. Understand how the definition of the derivative with difference quotient is used to find the algebraic rule for transforming a function into its derivative. Use the definition of the derivative to find the derivative rule for the power function.
