Mathcentre provide these resources which cover aspects of differentiation. They include an introduction to differentiation, a technique used to calculate the gradient or slope of a graph at different points, a table of common functions and their derivatives, as well as linearity rules which, when used with a table of derivatives, enable the differentiation of a wide range of functions.

Comprehensive notes, with clear descriptions, for each resource are provided, together with relevant diagrams and examples. Students wishing to review, and consolidate, their knowledge and understanding of differentiation will find them useful, as each topic includes a selection of questions to be completed, for which answers are provided.
