Building Blocks - Part 1
An important topic in finance and economics is the study of the speed of change of different economic quantities over time, such as GDP, unemployment, investment, and so on. Further, risk management instruments rely heavily on the speed of change of the underlying assets’ values and prices. The mathematical concept that
deals with these issues is the rate of change, otherwise known as the derivative.
On completion of this tutorial, you will be able to:
