This podcast introduces how to perform derivatives for some more complicated functions, specifically how to use the chain rule for derivatives of composite functions, and how to use the product rule for the derivative of the product of two functions.
This podcast introduces the concept of derivatives, at a depth appropriate for students beginning a calculus-based physics course. This includes a brief description of what a derivative means, and how to find derivatives using the power rule.

This podcast is a very quick review of how to use PV (pressure-volume) diagrams to find temperature at a state, work done during a process or cycle, and change in internal energy during a process or cycle.
This podcast is a very quick review of heat and work as ways to transfer energy into or out of a system, along with rules for when heat and work should be treated as positives or negatives when problem-solving.
