Introduction

All student that taking Additional mathematics are required to carry out a project work individually . This year , the Curriculum Development Division of Education of Malaysia has prepared 3 task . we have been given this task on 15 june 2011 . We are instructed to submit our project on 29 june 2011 . I learned that ‘Time is Gold’ . While completing this Additional Mathematics Project Work, i gained valuable experiences and able to:

* Apply and adapt a variety of problem solving

strategies to solve routine and non-routine

problems .

* Acquire effective mathematical communication through writing , and use the language of mathematics to express mathematical ideas correctly and precisely .

* Realise that mathematics is an important and powerful tool in solving real-life problems and hence develop positive attitude toward mathematics .

* Use technology especially the ICT appropriately and effectively .

A Brief History Of Differentiation

In mathematics, differential calculus is a subfield of calculus concerned with the study of the rates at which quantities change. It is one of the two traditional divisions of calculus, the other being integral calculus.

The primary objects of study in differential calculus are the derivative of a function, related notions such as the differential, and their applications. The derivative of a function at a chosen input value describes the rate of change of the function near that input value. The process of finding a derivative is called differentiation. Geometrically, the derivative at a...
