In our sixth class, we begin our study of one of the two main subjects in Calculus - derivatives. To prepare for class, read Stewart sections 2.1 and 2.2 and watch the following Khan Academy videos:

- All sections of Using secant line slopes to approximate the tangent slope
- Derivative as slope of a tangent line
- Tangent slope as limiting value of secant slope example 1
- Tangent slope as limiting value of secant slope example 2
- Tangent slope as limiting value of secant slope example 3
- Calculating slope of tangent line using derivative definition

Remember to do the practice problems as well (Calculating secant slopes, Tangent slops as limiting value of secant slope) As with all the practice problems, I use your results in conjunction with the quick quizzes to help plan the next day's class time.
