The History of Differentiation
Differentiation is part of the science of Calculus, and was first
developed in the 17
th
century by two different Mathematicians.
Gottfried Leibniz
(1646-1716)
Germany
Sir Isaac Newton
(1642-1727)
England

Differentiation, or finding the
instantaneous rate of change, is
an essential part of:
• Mathematics and Physics
• Chemistry
• Biology
• Computer Science
• Engineering

In reality speed does not often change instantly. The graph on the
right is more realistic as it shows a gradually changing curve.
The journey has the same average speed, but the instantaneous
speed is different at each point because the gradient of the curve is
constantly changing. How can we find the instantaneous speed?
