19 - Implicit Differentiation

How do we use implicit differentiation to find the derivative of a function?

Homework: 2.5 # 3,5,11,29,35,47

Vocabulary: Implicit form, Explicit form

Study Questions:

  1. What do we mean when we say that a function is defined implicitly by some equation?
  2. Why do we often need (x,y) instead of just the x-coordinate to discuss the derivative at a point in implicit differentiation?
