Video Summary:

The difference quotient is essential in the definition of the derivative of a function. the slope of the secant line is an average rate of change The derivative is used to find the slope of the tangent line to the graph of a function at a point. the slope of the tangent line is an instantaneous rate of change The derivative is found by letting h approach zero in the difference quotient. i.e. the slope of the secant line approaches the slope of the tangent line as h gets close to zero
