## Differential calculus

### Teaching unit

### Description

Differential calculus is the part of mathematics that studies the change that occurs in a variable when a change in another variable and both variables are related. We begin by reviewing some basic concepts, domain, continuity, maximum and minimum. It will introduce the concept of derivative as rate of change of function, their applications and will examine the concept of linear approximation. In the last chapter will introduce the concept of integral, will present the different integration techniques and applications.
