The above would include chain rule, product rule, quotient rule and addition rule. I understand one rule, but then again not well. Not a real good idea about the rest, and trying to read it (i will and am) still doesn't really help make it familiar. Thus, some lay man examples and definitions could be just what I need.

Take a look at this website, Stu. I've found that his explanations are pretty good. He also gives some examples.

If you have any specific questions, post them to the forum.

Hope this helps.

Thanks, i think one reason im strugling with understanding is not interpruting the missing information in short hand algerbaic expressions, and symbolic uses. V = velocity mv = mass (times) velocity. etc. with so many I've not had time to absorb the methodology because it becoomes jiberish.
