This calculus video tutorial shows you how to find the slope and the equation of the tangent line and normal line to the curve / function at a given point. This video contains plenty of examples and practice problems.

Here is a list of topics:

1. Finding the slope of the tangent line using Derivatives

2. Finding the derivative of a function using the limits process - Derivative Definition

3. Tangent line - Instantaneous rate of change

4. Writing the equation of the tangent line given the slope and a x-y coordinate point / ordered pair

5. Linear Equations - Slope Intercept Form and Point Slope Form

6. Finding the slope of the normal line from the tangent line to the curve

7. How to write the equation of the normal line of the graph at a point

8. Calculating the slope of the tangent line using limits - Instantaneous Rate of change

9. Estimating the slope of the tangent line using the average rate of change formula - slope of the secant line

Tried out the canvas response option on @SpiralEducation & it's so awesome! Add text or drawings AND annotate an image! #R10tech

Using @SpiralEducation in class for math review. Student approved! Thumbs up! Thanks.

Absolutely amazing collaboration from year 10 today. 100% engagement and constant smiles from all #lovetsla #spiral

Students show better Interpersonal Writing skills than Speaking via @SpiralEducation Great #data #langchat folks!
