Practical Problems Involving Differentiation/Integration/Limits

  1. Aug 26, 2010 #1
    Hi guys,

    As somebody who likes to learn and understand everyday problems I've really hit a wall...

    I learnt differentiation, integration and limits in my undergrad course, passed the exams etc but the way it was taught was pretty bad, nobody ever gave us "real life" examples. Personally I find that I learn much better with real life examples and so I thought I'd post here for some advice.

    The real question is: Could you point me in the direction of some "real life" (simple, applicable problems) which require differentiation/integration to solve?

    I know that there must literally be thousands and thousands but any help is appreciated.

    Many thanks...
