In this video, the Crash Course expert, Shini, explains how trigonometry plays a role in derivatives. She displays the graphs of sin and cos and uses those to show how she arrived at the derivatives of each. She also defines the derivatives of each of the trigonomic measures (sin, cos, tan).
This clip explains the importance of constants: what they are and how they play a role in derivatives and integrals. This significant clip explains how to use integrals in an equation and on a graph while incorporating the logistical and necessary definition of constants. This uses visuals of a graph and numbers to form the equation and understanding of integrals, derivatives, and constants. Shini also explains initial value and position graphs.
This video explains the main focus of derivatives. This Crash Course Narrator, Shini, defines how to use mathematics to write derivatives and calculate them. Additionally, Shini introduces the Power Rule (which is a way to calculate derivatives)
Michael speaks with representatives at Goldman Sachs to purchase credit default swaps on mortgage bonds. They explain that this means he is betting against the housing market, that millions of people won't be able to pay off their mortgages. Michael surprises them throughout the conversation but especially when he asks to purchase $100 million instead of $5 million in credit default swaps.
