## Description

## eMath 7: Derivatives

- 300-400 assignments + answers, in three levels of complexity
- Numerous example solutions
- Possibility to add comments and highlight text
- Possibility to check the correctness of the calculation

**Overview:** This book introduces the basic notions of calculus: continuity, limits, and derivatives. It shows how to compute the derivative of a function. It applies this to describe the behaviour of functions, and to find extreme values of functions. Additionally, it includes a chapter on how to work with rational expressions.
