#### Differentiation: definition and basic derivative rules

We will go over some multiple choice and free response questions that are typical of the second unit taught (Differentiation part 1)

It is suggested that you have gone through/reviewed the second unit of AP Calculus AB by this point -- either in school or on your own.

If you have not, I will try my best to additionally cover any holes in content.
