Mini-Investigation: Differentiation and its Applications (Calculus Part One)

Varun R, Year 7

This essay is my Mini-Investigation topic for the Michaelmas and first two weeks of the Lent term. This is not really an ‘investigation’ as such. During my homework slot, I have learnt new things and this is basically a summary of what I have learnt. It is split into ‘Sections’ which loosely follow each week’s work (This is somewhat inaccurate due to the fact that for some weeks, I did more than others). My Topic of Research is about Differentiation and its applications. Differentiation is one of the two key ideas of calculus (A very interesting branch of Mathematics). The other key idea is Integration (I will be studying this for my second Mini-Investigation this year). This topic is a follow up of Algebra and Functions of sorts. I will start by explaining key Ideas before moving on to harder applications.
