6.2 Khan Academy: Implicit differentiation
  • Created By Ms. Kondo
  • Description:
    Like people, mathematical relations are not always explicit about their intentions. In this tutorial, we'll be able to take the derivative of one variable with respect to another even when they are implicitly defined (like "x^2 + y^2 = 1").
  • Purpose:
    Students will:
    • Explore relations describing implicit functions.
    • Differentiate implicitly.
  • Targets: Student
  • Standards:
  • APS.MA.9-12.II.F.3
    9th Grade, 10th Grade, 11th Grade, 12th Grade
