#### Calculus: Derivative of x^(x^x)

Sal starts with an example of finding dy/dx of y = x2 and builds to showing the solution to the more complicated implicit differentiation problem of finding the derivative of y in terms of x of y = x ^ x ^ x .

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Calculus: Derivatives 1

Sal defines the term derivative by taking the listener on a well-organized tour of slope. First, he reviews the concept of slope of a line from algebra, then extends this idea to look at the slope of the curve by first examining a secant...

#### Calculus: Derivatives 2.5 (new HD version)

By defining the formal definition of a derivative, f(x), Sal is able to find the general form of the derivate function for the example f(x) = x2. He continues to stress the importance of an intuitive understanding of derivative functions.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Calculus: Derivatives 2

Sal continues where he left off with the last video, "Derivatives 1,Ó by looking at the equation y = x^2 and examining the slope of the secant line at a specific point, and again defining the limit as x approaches zero to get the slope...
