4/4/2021 -- Advanced 2A: A Study of Measurement Errors as an Introduction to Differential Calculus. (Oleg Gleizer)

Students will learn what an error of measurement is and how the said error propagates through computations that use the result of the measurement. In the process, the students will derive the sum, product, and quotient rules for the derivative using an engineering approach instead of taking limits.
