Sharing Teaching Ideas: Is the Derivative of a Product the Product of the Derivatives?

Marsha Hurwitz 

January 2001, Volume 94, Issue 1, Page 26

Abstract:
The author discusses with an example that the derivative of the product is generally not the product of the derivative, shows how to motivate a correct general conjecture, and then encourages students to find two functions where the derivative of the product really does equal the product of the derivatives.
