In this lesson on the calculation of derivatives, students will learn the power, product, reciprocal, and quotient rules for finding derivatives. The lesson covers the basic functions, linearity properties, and includes several examples to illustrate how to apply these rules. The lesson also explains the derivation of the reciprocal and quotient rules and provides a more general power rule for any integer. Overall, this lesson provides a comprehensive overview of the various methods for calculating derivatives.
