The derivative of a constant is equal to zero.

A derivative is a function that gives the slope at some x value.

The power rule is used to find the derivative of monomials.

📝 The derivative of x^7 is 42x^6, derived using the power rule.

🔍 The definition of the derivative is f'(x) = lim(h->0) [(f(x+h) - f(x))/h].

📈 Derivatives give the slope of the tangent line at any x value on a curve.

📏 The slope of the tangent line can be approximated by calculating the slope of the secant line between two points that are close to the desired point.

⚙️ The derivative of a polynomial function can be found by differentiating each term separately using the power rule and the constant multiple rule.

📈 The derivative is a function that gives the slope of the tangent line at a specific x-value, allowing for the approximation of the tangent line.
