# Ch06. Applications of Derivatives

In this self study course, you will learn applications of derivatives: rate of change of bodies, increasing/decreasing functions, tangents and normals, use of derivatives in approximation, maxima and minima (first derivative test motivated geometrically and second derivative test given as a provable tool). Simple problems (that illustrate basic principles and understanding of the subject as well as real-life situations). For further understanding of concepts and for examination preparation, this course has explanation of all NCERT Exercise questions and important NCERT Examples.
