Differentiation

Rate this Entry
Today I learned about Differentiation (finding derivatives) in my Pre-Calculus course.

I'm not exactly sure what you use them for, but the book said they were originally created to find the speed of a moving object at a certain instant in time.

Sounds kind of exciting. Maybe I can find a use for it in programming. That always helps me cement the math concepts I learn into my little head.

Have you had to use differentiation in any programming projects?
