History Of Differentiation

The concept of a derivative is invented from the problem to finding a tangent of a
curve because tangent of curve defines rate of change.

So, let’s discuss history of differentiation: The first scientist who resembled the
modern method to determining tangent of curve is Giles Persone de Roberval during
1630’s and 1640’s.

Roberval determine the constituent motion vectors at a point. Roberval define motion
vectors, for a parabola and gives method to find tangent of curve on parabola. At
same time, Pierre de Fermat used the notion of Maxima and Minima to finding
tangent of curve.

he Norman Conquest Project is an attempt to provide a systematic approach to
differentiation. I have identified nine different strategies for delivering differentiation in
history.

Differentiation by Content

The pupils study different materials within the same topic area but do the same activities.

Differentiation by Activities

The pupils study the same content but do different activities.

Differentiation by Negotiation

The pupils study different materials within the same topic area and also do different
activities. Teachers help pupils to select appropriate materials.

Differentiation by Support

The pupils study the same materials, do the same activities, but receive different amounts
of support from the teacher or from extra printed information.

Differentiation by Extension

The pupils study the same materials and do the same activities. Extension work is given
to the most able after they have finished the basic activities.

Differentiation by Response

The pupils are set open-ended assignments that can be interpreted at different levels.

Differentiation by Group Work

The pupils work in mixed ability groups. Pupils help each other by working together and
interpreting the tasks at different levels.

The pupils are given the same information and activities. The activities become
progressively more difficult.

The pupils work through the activities at different rates and therefore only the more able

Differentiation by Role

The pupils carry out different activities depending on the role they are playing in a
simulation. The roles are matched to the abilities, aptitudes and needs of the pupil.
