Inverses and derivatives

It's that time of year where derivatives and inverses both start creeping into calculus classes, and all that notation at the upper right of a function name starts to get confusing! Continuing on a theme, I'm using pressure and altitude this week to do a quick conceptual worksheet on derivatives and inverses and derivatives of inverses. It's good to write out these relationships.

Not a ton of new science in this one, but perhaps useful if you're "following the story" of atmospheric pressure 🙂 I may add some similar worksheets with other settings for interpretation, just because they're fun!
