Whitman College: David Guichard's "Calculus, Chapter 2: Instantaneous Rate of Change: The Derivative, Section 2.2: An Example"
Read Section 2.2 (pages 34-36). This reading discusses the derivative in the context of studying the velocity of a falling object. This example again motivates the need for a more rigorous approach to the concept of a limit.
