Derivative of functions

Course description

This course is designed for the learner to learn the materials by watching videos and doing the lesson assignments. There are different ways of taking this course (see below on price of the course). I am giving you a process to learn a subject that many people find difficult. Once you master it you shouldn't have any problems. My goal is for the learner to master the content of the course. In either way you decide to take this course I can help several learners to set up discussions in New Directions Education Services Google Facebook page in order to learn as a group. You can subscribe to this page to learn interesting content. The course is designed to learn the materials by doing four types of activities:

1) Watching the videos

2) Reading the lessons and learning the content

3) Doing the examples of problems solved in each lesson

4) Doing the exercises non-solved

 The student will have to watch one or more videos and complete the assignments for each of the lessons. Answers will be provided for exercises to be solved. It is recommended that the students read the materials related to each lesson, learn the definitions, rules and other types of theories and apply these to solve problems. Each example should be done by the student even though it is solved on the material as a model. The student should first look at the examples, master the process of solving them and do it by himself without looking at the model or example. For each lesson the student has to complete the non-solved exercises. Once the student finishes the solution of these exercises he/she can compare his/her own answers to the answers/provided. Students can send any questions related to the course by reaching the instructor via his website New Direction Education Services at www.ndes.wikidot.com
