Is it normal that it takes 2 days to learn to understand the derivative in depth? I mean understanding it thoroughly like you would have invented it yourself.

If it took you more than 2 hours you're ngmi.

>most things in real life, you understand something right away or you dont at all
how can he say something so unwise? i didnt understand things at first but i understood them later on many occasions. was he a super fast quitter? quitting when the first obstacle is encountered.

Cause Minsky is a mathematician larper and every man in the past century had it stupid easy in soience and then you get invited to the epstein island

sounds like a skill issue, i understood it the moment i heard it's definition.
here's a recap of how it went:
>teacher: the derivative is a function that outputs the slope of its parent function
>okay, got it
>teacher: here's the formula to find it
>great, i'll have that memorized by tomorrow

Dude, nobody understands derivatives in depth. Unless you mean a shallow highschool illusion of understanding like

The definition given by that other retard was so bad, it would have given him an F in the classes I've taken. That's the definition you might introduce to a middle schooler taking Algebra.

Derive the chain rule from this.

What fucking formula you retard?
As someone who has done all of calculus, there is not (1) formula for derivatives. You have the chainrule, product rule, quotient rule, all of these result in derivatives for different f's. Each function has it's own derivative.

Why don't you show me the formula that you "memorized by tomorrow"?

he is probably talking about the limit of the difference quotient. why are you so aggressive lmao

that is not understanding
that's rote learning

Since you seem to fully understandand the intricacies of the definition of derivative, could you explain that one in detail ?

If you had invented it yourself you wouldn't understand shit about it. It take hundred years of generalization and formalization to understand new concept that were merely the intuition of some genius, who himself built it up on the back of hundreds of years of formalization .So pick up a texbook and build up knowledge starting from basic concept if you want to understand thoroughly

Uhhhh, no. Derivatives aren't that complex. But I presume that it depends quite a bit on how it was explained, so if it was explained retardedly, it's acceptable. But me personally, it was explained to me correctly so I got it right away.

another anon specifically requested that i tell him which formula i meant, that's the only reason i included it. i'm not going to type out the entire proof here, i have nothing to prove to you.

hey anon what's a tangent space haha.
what does exterior derivative mean haha
funny questions.
get with the program naggerhomosexual you don't know a damn fucking thing whatsoever yet, and I don't either for that matter. We're just getting started

Rise over run as run approaches zero.

(d/dx)f(x) = lim h-->0, [f(x + h) - f(x)]/h

Plug in f(x)= x^a and you'll get ax^(a-1), which shows you how that rule was derived. All the other rules were derived the same way.

Do brainlets have trouble with this?

I don't remember how long it took for me, but my first thought is that 2 days seems reasonable.
Neither concerningly long nor unrealistically short.
