To introduce the rules of differentiation.

At the end of this lesson, students should be able to:

Apply the rules of differentiation to solve any problems.

1.The derivative for constant
function
2. The Power Rule for all integer
3. Differentiation of multiples
4. Differentiation of sums
5. Differentiation of Products
6. Differentiation of Quotient

1.The derivative for constant function

If , where is a constant, then

Example: ,

2. The Power Rule for all integer

If , is any integer, then

Example:
