I'm at the differen't differential rules (i.e. Power Rule, Constant Multiple Rule) and my text provides proofs for each one. Should I take the time to go over each one and attempt to prove them myself? Will they be useful for the AP exam?

513Member155Junior Member804Member810MemberWhile the AP Calculus exam hasn't tested on proofs as far back as I can remember, the skills underlying several of the proofs are pretty useful, and some college professors will assume that you either know or can duplicate them.

155Junior MemberIt takes my friends the same amount of time so...

82Junior MemberReally, it depends a lot on the teacher. Some classes have a strong focus on proofs and theory and have their tests structured as such. I feel bad for Calc 1 classes that actually cover epsilon-delta proofs.
