Definition of the derivative

In this worksheet, you will see how to solve two problems: the mathematical problem of finding the tangent line to the graph of a function, and the physical problem of defining the velocity of a moving object. Although these problems might seem unrelated at first, it will turn out that they both lead to the same mathematical concept: the derivative of a function. <img src="https://www.maplesoft.com/view.aspx?si=4031//applications/images/app_image_blank_lg.jpg" alt="Definition of the derivative" style="max-width: 25%;" align="left"/>In this worksheet, you will see how to solve two problems: the mathematical problem of finding the tangent line to the graph of a function, and the physical problem of defining the velocity of a moving object.

https://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=3989&ref=Feed
Some simple curves in a plane may be described algebraically by setting up a suitable co-ordinate system in the plane and describing the curve as the graph of a function. We have seen already how useful such a description is; for example, we used it to obtain a formula for the arclength of such a curve. The description fails, however, for even so simple a curve as a circle: there is no choice of co-ordinate system for which a circle is the graph of a function<img src="https://www.maplesoft.com/view.aspx?si=3989//applications/images/app_image_blank_lg.jpg" alt="Parametric curves" style="max-width: 25%;" align="left"/>Some simple curves in a plane may be described algebraically by setting up a suitable co-ordinate system in the plane and describing the curve as the graph of a function.

https://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=3987&ref=Feed
In this lesson, we explore methods of expanding functions into power series. The basic idea hinges on the geometric series expansion of 1/(1-x) . However, using differentiation and integration we can expand many more functions into power series also. In addition, we will examine the interval of convergence and how it is affected by the location of the expansion and features of the function such as vertical asymptotes. In general, this module will reinforce methods one might use by hand and not rely on the automated expansions Maple can generate.

We have used sequences lots of times before. The sequence of estimates to the solution of an equation generated by Newton's Method is one. The sequence of estimates to the integral of a function over an interval obtained by subdividing the interval into more and more subintervals is another. These are examples of potentially infinite sequences. These are sequences we hope converge to the answer we seek, whether it be the solution of an equation or the value of an integral<img src="https://www.maplesoft.com/view.aspx?si=3979//applications/images/app_image_blank_lg.jpg" alt="Convergence of sequences " style="max-width: 25%;" align="left"/>We have used sequences lots of times before.

You know from the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus that every continuous function has an anti-derivative. On the other hand, not every (continuous) function has an elementary anti-derivative, which we could define loosely as an anti-derivative built up from functions discussed in first semester of Calculus. We have seen some examples already.

Here are 20 anti-derivatives. We reduce each of them to a simpler form by means of a substitution. Here are the rules for today's game:
Use the unevaluated Int command throughout the worksheet.
You may consider that you have "solved" the problem when you have reduced it to one of the standard forms or to a problem which can be done with a known reduction formula, or to a sum of problems of these types.
Try to find the simplest substitution that will work in each case.
