What is the difference between a differential rate law and an integrated rate law?

A differential rate law has a rate as the function of [R], whereas an integrated rate law has rate as a function of time.

A differential rate law always takes the form of (1/a)*(d[A]/dt)=k[A]^n while an integrated rate law takes different forms depending on the order of the reaction. For example, a first order reaction has the integrated rate law as k[A]=k[A]initial *e^-kt.
