It is easier to see the slope that way, but developing the derivative formula will be harder than using the coefficients of x and y in standard form as you have it.<br /><br />We are just finishing up derivatives in my AP classes, but they didn't quite get limits at the beginning of the year. This would be a good thing to use for review (if we can somehow get access to the computer lab and download GGB and all that mess in the next few weeks).CalcDavehttps://www.blogger.com/profile/14039458440867020542noreply@blogger.com
