Forum Question: The Product Rule

Delicious is a social bookmarking service that allows users to tag, save, manage and share web pages from a centralized source. Delicious greatly improves how people discover, remember and share on the Internet (excerpted from the Delicious website).

This Forum Question requires setting up a Delicious account. Once you create an account, take some time to learn how to use the features. ... Ready to try it out?

The next derivative rule you will learn is the Product Rule for finding the derivative of a product of two functions. Search the Internet for a site which explains the Product Rule well enough for you to understand and apply. Bookmark this site on Delicious. So that your classmates can easily find this bookmark, you want to assign a tag which will be recognized by our class. The tag you will use for this bookmark (and all future bookmarks for this course) is crmscalc2010. Add a second tag of your nom de plume, and a third tag of Product Rule. Now the bookmark can be easily shared with anyone in our class. Look for your bookmark in our Delicious library on the left sidebar of our blog.

Once you have bookmarked the site, read Section 4.2 of our textbook on the Product Rule. Write a blog post comparing the explanations given on your bookmarked site and in the textbook. From which source did you get a better understanding of the rule? Include in your post what you liked and disliked about each explanation. End your post by stating the Product Rule and giving an example.

After posting to our blog, take this short quiz to check your understanding of the Product Rule.
