Facts & Formulae Leaflets (2)

Resource type Differentiation for Economics and Business Studies Functions of Multi-Variable Functions
Overview of the rules of partial differentiation and methods of optimization of functions in Economics and Business Studies. This leaflet has been contributed to the mathcentre Community Project by Morgiane Richard (University of Aberdeen) and reviewed by Anthony Cronin (University College Dublin).
Resource type Differentiation for Economics and Business Studies Functions of One Variable
Overview of differentiation and its applications in Economics. This leaflet has been contributed to the mathcentre Community Project by Morgiane Richard (University of Aberdeen) and reviewed by Anthony Cronin (University College Dublin).

Motivating Mathematics (1)

Resource type Faulty Tyres - David Saunders
This mathtutor extension discusses how mathematical modelling using differentiation may be used to determine optimum delivery sizes. This resource is released under a Creative Commons license Attribution-Non-Commercial-No Derivative Works and the copyright is held by Skillbank Solutions Ltd.

Practice & Revision (1)

Resource type Basic Differentiation - A Refresher
This Refresher Booklet has been designed for students who have studied an AS level course in mathematics. It enables the user to practice basic techniques.

Quick Reference (3)

Resource type Introduction to differentiation
This leaflet provides a rough and ready introduction to differentiation. This is a technique used to calculate the gradient, or slope, of a graph at different points.
Resource type Linearity rules
There are two rules known as linearity rules which, when used with a table of derivatives, enable us to differentiate a wider range of functions. These rules are summarised in this leaflet.
Resource type Table of derivatives
This leaflet provides a table of common functions and their derivatives, and the opportunity to practice using it.
