    Re: reading the mind of a prof question..

    Sounds like he might be thinking of the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus, which says in part for a suitable function f, that
    [tex]\frac{d}{dx}\int_a^x f(t) dt = f(x)[/tex]

    Do a search on "fundamental theorem of calculus" and you should get some ideas.

    [tex]\frac{d}{dx}\int_a^{x^2} f(t) dt = ?[/tex]
    Here's one fairly simple problem

    Regarding "newton calculus" both Isaac Newton and Gottfried Leibniz are credited about equally with the development of calculus.
