Calculus has the power to explain everything from the periodicity of the heartbeat to the planetary orbits. Differentiation is one important part of Calculus denoting the rate of change. From velocity to acceleration, everything is an application of differentiation. The best way to understand concepts is to understand through real-world examples.
The University of Pennsylvania has offered a free online course on single-variable Calculus which emphases on conceptual understanding and applications. The course is designed for students beginning in engineering, physical and social sciences. The second part of this five-part series is devoted to the study of differentiation.
About the course:
In the course Calculus: Single variable Part II - Differentiation, the focus will be on derivatives, differentiation rules, linearization, higher derivatives, optimization, differentials and differentiation operators.
The commitment required to study this course is said to be 6 - 8 hours per week. A dedicated study of such courses will improve the basic concepts of the students and help them clear the high-level entrance exams like JEE, GATE, JAM with ease.
