Basic Concepts: Definition of derivative

Recall when finding the slope of two points, we use the formula

Since the slope is the derivative, we can actually use this formula to estimate derivatives from a table.

We will just readjust the slope formula to look like this:

$f'(a) \approx \frac{f(a+h) - f(a)}{h}$

Use this when estimating the slope of the very **first** point of the table

$f'(a) \approx \frac{f(a+h) - f(a-h)}{2h}$

Use this when estimating the slope of **middle** points of the table

$f'(a) \approx \frac{f(a) - f(a-h)}{h}$

Use this when estimating the slope of the very **last point** of the table

**Note that we will not use these formulas in the videos. We will just use the simple slope formula.**
