My school doesn't teach additional maths/pure maths, and what I know is that calculus is a part of it. If not, then differentiation must be, because I have not been taught it. Still, differentiation popped up in plenty of problems in my maths and physics books. It would be very helpful if someone explained differentiation. Any other way to find the gradient of a point in a curve would be helpful.

Here some solved problems by proof of first principles: https://www.math.ucdavis.edu/~kouba/ProblemsList.html Thanks from topsquark
