Here are the main points that will be addressed in the videos. Please read these and think about them as you watch.

  • Implicit differentiation is a procedure which can be used as long as y is locally a function of x.
  • If we treat as a function of locally, we can use the chain rule to take the derivative of both sides of an equation with respect to .
  • For example, if we see a in an equation, the derivative with respect to would be , due to the chain rule.
