In this worksheet, you will see how to solve two problems: the mathematical problem of finding the tangent line to the graph of a function, and the physical problem of defining the velocity of a moving object. Although these problems might seem unrelated at first, it will turn out that they both lead to the same mathematical concept: the derivative of a function.
