π₯Watch: AP Calculus AB/BC - The Limit Definition of a Derivative

Recall that a **derivative** represents the __instantaneous rate of change__ at a single point on function, and is also represented by the __slope of the tangent line__ at that point.Β π

The derivative of 3x^2 is always going to be 6x, but in a concrete form, we can establish the rate of change of a single point on the function by simply plugging in that x-value.Β π€
