ME-C1 Rates of Change
The principal focus of this subtopic is for students to solve problems involving the chain rule and differentiation of the exponential function, and understand how these concepts can be applied to the physical and natural sciences.
Students develop the ability to study motion problems in an abstract situation, which may in later studies be applied to large and small mechanical systems, from aeroplanes and satellites to miniature robotics. Students also study the mathematics of exponential growth and decay, two fundamental processes in the natural environment.
