Derivative Formulas Through Geometry

Some common derivative formulas are explained with geometric intuition. After introducing the derivative and its relation to rates of change in the last lesson, the next step is to learn how to compute the derivatives of functions explicitly given with some formula. A typical calculus student spends quite a bit of time drilling on how to compute derivatives, often without the context of a concrete rate of change problem.
