An algebraic approach to the derivative

Colignatus, Thomas

There is a new approach to the derivative, an algebraic one, different from using infinitesimals or limits. The approach originated in research on mathematics education and has been developed to the stage that it can be tested there. For mathematics research there is scope for further development of foundations. The paper shortly reviews the approach and the literature about it.
