The Perfect Poet Award Acceptance Poem Plus…

Do you remember ODE-

Ordinary Differentiate Equation?

Do you like to be reminded of

How much a fine mathematician

love to work on math as if one is a magician?

Let me teach you

about how to differentiate a polynomial

By the power rule.

The rate of change in distances at certain time period is called speed,

The rate of change in the increase of population is called average growth,

How about the rate of change in each second?

The way to calculate the instant rate of change

Is to differentiate…

For a polynomial,

The derivatives to any fixed number or constant

Is zero,

The derivative to 1  is zero,

The derivative to 2 is again zero,

The derivative to 200 is also zero..

What a hero.

The derivatives to any power of x

Is to bring down the power as a coefficient,

Reduce the power to x by one.

For example,

The derivative of x to the power 5

Is 5 times x to the power 4…

Do you get it?

Did you picture it?

The derivative of x to the power 2

Is 2 times x to the power 1,

Which is the same as 2 times x or 2x,

How divine!

If you stick to the rule,

You can do it correct and feel cool.

Keep working on it,

Keep thinking of it,

You will make it,

Thanks to Trisha, Fiveloaf, and Pravin who have nominated Jingle for The PERFECT Poet Award , which Jingle feels very honored and accepts here,  Please visit them to read their OUTSTANDING work in poetry today…

The Power Rule

d
dx
xn =  nxn−1

“The derivative of a power of x

is equal to the product of


the exponent  times


x with the exponent reduced by 1.”

That is called the power rule.  For example,

d
dx
x5 =  5x4

However, we know that the power rule is true when n = 1:

d
dx
x1 =  1· x0 =  1;
that it is true when n = 2:
d
dx
x2 =  2x;
and that it is true when n = 3 :
d
dx
x3 =  3x².

It seems natural, then, to give a proof by induction;  The induction hypothesis will be that the power rule is true for n = k:

d
dx
xk =  k xk−1,

and we must show that it is true for n = k + 1; i.e. that

d
dx
xk+1 =  (k + 1) xk.

Now,

d
dx
xk+1 = d
dx
x· xk
d
dx
xk+1 = x· k xk−1 + xk· 1,
d
dx
xk+1 = k xk + xk
d
dx
xk+1 = (k + 1)xk.

Therefore, if the power rule is true for n = k, then it is also true for its succesor, k + 1.  And since the rule is true for n = 1, it is therefore true for every natural number.

Problem.   Calculate the derivative of  x6 − 3x4 + 5x3x + 4.

6x5 − 12x3 + 15x² − 1

  1. Thank you, Jingle, for the nomination…I’m very touched that you chose to nominate ME out of all the poets that you are involved with through your wonderful community…Thank You! 🙂 You know…… YOU ROCK 🙂

    Sincerely,
    Tracy H

  2. What a post!!! I am downloading it (with your permission ofcourse)… I can use it to teach my hubby some decent Math .. heheheh
    So cutely you’ve put it, Ji!! You are the coolest! 🙂

    Thank you for the lovely awards… I am in the process of putting them up!!! Yaaayyyy

  3. I would need a magician to do that math.
    I wonder if the Universe would put one in my path?
    I can easily Differentiate
    because it takes a good teacher
    to give everyone the same concept on a unique plate

  4. Hi jingle..thts a real cool poem…Always had this fear of amthematics.. now will see it in a new light 🙂

    And I must must thank you for mentioning about my book..Im honoured, flattered and humbled..thnk you so much !

    Ive nt been so regular on my blog or on ur wonderful forum these days due to professional, personal reasons….But believe me, I am trying my best!

    thnks once again Jingle for the best wishes!
