Cool Math Tricks #1: Implicit Derivative

So you're in Calculus BC, and you just learned how to find the derivative of a function ($dy/dx$) when the variables aren't isolated. Unfortunately, the "standard" process that is usually taught is, although useful, really slow. Lucky for us, math always has shortcuts. In this post, I will describe a fast shortcut for implicit differentiation. … Continue reading Cool Math Tricks #1: Implicit Derivative
