Once you have those down, you can start working on more complex problems involving derivatives and integrals.f

An example of its use to derive something is, for example, the position function given a constant acceleration. Given [tex]\frac{d^2 s}{dt^2} = a[/tex] and the initial values [itex]s(0) = s_0[/itex] and [itex]s'(0) = v(0) = v_0[/itex], we can integrate twice to get [tex]s = \frac{1}{2}at^2 + v_0 t + s_0[/tex] But this is merely to derive the formula, and unless you really hate memorizing formulas, it's not typically done more than once.

Beyond basic derivatives and integration techniques you won't need much in a first semester physics course. It is of course, to your advantage to get a head and I suggest learning intimately the kinematic equations posted earlier and how they are derived. How the derivative of the position function is the velocity and the derivative of the velocity function is acceleration.

Firest you have to start from derivation and integration, then move to more complex problems
