Power Maths       by Sidney Schuman

 

An unorthodox introduction to the calculus power rules, designed to help A-level maths students conquer their fear of the subject. This is not intended as a replacemnt of classical teaching methods.

The WORKSHEET uses a numerical / graphical method to deduce the integral power rule. The differential power rule is also obtained, without any reference to the concept of the limit or infinitesimals.
