deriving the work equation: -P*deltaV

Will we be required to derive the work equation (-P*deltaV) for the midterm?

We usually don't have to derive equations but there are usually conceptual questions about the equations.

I don't think so Lavelle usually just shows derivatives as a way of understanding where the equations came from.
