Derivatives of Inverse Trigonometric Functions
This program covers the important topic of Derivatives of Inverse Trigonometric Functions in Calculus. We begin by discussing what an inverse trigonometric function is, how to take its derivative, and why it is a central topic in Calculus. Next, we solve several practical calculus problems that give students practice with derivatives of inverse trigonometric functions. The entire lesson is taught by working example problems beginning with the easier ones and gradually progressing to the harder problems. Emphasis is placed on giving students confidence their skills by gradual repetition so that the skills learned in this section are committed to long-term memory.
