Contextual applications of differentiation

I'll continue last week's session on contextual applications of differentiation, going on to analyze derivatives in non-motion contexts and related rates, using plenty of examples! I'm also happy to answer any questions on the topic or Calculus or math in general. If you didn't come to my last session on the topic, no worries, you should still be able to follow along with this session with just a basic understanding of derivatives.
