Hello everyone. Sorry for the late scribe. Once again, I have work on the day that I am scribe. Anyway, we started off today with some pretty easy questions.

We had to find the derivative and as we all did the "super hard" questions... we realized that the derivative to all 3 functions was x2.
After that we tried another question.

We came up with 1/2(x2) and soon realized that we can add any constant to the parent function and the derivative will still turn out to be x.

antiderivative: finding the parent function from the derivative.

Next we came up with a general rule on how to do this for all power functions. And this is what we came up with.

This is a list of all the derivatives we could remember!.

^^ At the bottom that explains how you can find the derivative of a log.

For the rest of the class we did some practice and looking at examples of visual calculus. So that sums up todays class! ..

The next scribe is.... Graeme!
