### derivation?

Do we actually have to know how to derive the equation for an exam or just understand what it means/what it does? Should we memorize the final equation?

I believe that we only need to know the final equation at the end of the derivation. We only derive the formula in class to understand where the equation comes from. But I do not think we will be asked to derive any equations or formulas on any test or exam.

I think you should probably know the derivations of equations that aren't on the formula sheet. Also know the derivations if the objectives include knowing the derivation.
