Now that you have mastered the rules and formulas of differentiation, it is time for us to apply them! This section focuses on taking all the previous derivative rules and applying them in different contexts.

In order to be able to successfully understand this section, you need to know the difference between an average rate of change and an instantaneous rate of change.

**This section requires you to know how to differentiate using **

Power Rule

Product Rule

Quotient Rule

Chain Rule

Implicit Differentiation

**It also requires you to know how to derive:**

Trigonometric Functions

Inverse Trigonometric Functions

Inverse Functions

Logarithmic Functions

Exponential Functions

Besides all of the calculus prerequisite information, we will also be working on using some **formulas **you would have learned in previous courses, such as formulas for:

Area

Volume

Perimeter

Circumference

Pythagorean Theorem

Thousands of students are studying with us for the AP Calculus AB/BC exam.
