1. #### Amides, Anhydrides, Esters and Acyl Chlorides

Carboxylic Acid Derivatives - Amides, Anhydrides, Esters and Acyl Chlorides.

2. #### Basic Derivative Examples

Basic Derivative Examples - A few examples of finding derivatives for 'easy' functions.

3. #### Big Picture: Derivatives

Calculus finds the relationship between the distance traveled and the speed — easy for constant speed, not so easy for changing speed. Professor Strang is finding the rate of change, the slope of a curve, and the derivative of a function.

4. #### Calculus

Topics covered in the first two or three semesters of college calculus. Everything from limits to derivatives to integrals to vector calculus. Should understand the topics in the pre-calculus playlist first (the limit videos are in both playlists).

5. #### Calculus / First Semester - Limits, Continuity, Derivatives

This play list should be pretty much in order with the way many people will see material in the class. Of course, not all classes are the same, so some of my videos may be out of order with your particular class. If you are looking for a particular topic, you are also encouraged to do an individual search on that topic as well, as I may have left a few videos out on accident.

6. #### Calculus: Derivatives 1

Calculus-Derivative: Understanding that the derivative is just the slope of a curve at a point (or the slope of the tangent line).

7. #### Calculus: Derivatives 2

Calculus-Derivative: Finding the slope (or derivative) of a curve at a particular point.

8. #### Calculus: Derivatives 2.5

Calculus-Derivative: Finding the derivative of y=x^2

9. #### Calculus: Higher Order Partial Derivatives

Calculus: Higher Order Partial Derivatives. In this video, I briefly discuss the notation for higher order partial derivatives and do an example of finding a 3rd partial derivative.

11. #### Chain Rule + Partial Derivatives

This video shows how to calculate partial derivatives via the chain rule. Such ideas are seen in first year university.
