Use differentiation to understand a function's rate of change
Apply the fundamental theorem of calculus, and grasp the relationship between a function's derivative and its integral

I wish my My Maths Teacher had made Calculus So Interesting !!!!
Anyways, the learning step in this book is from applications to theory and concepts not the other way around.
