### Abstract:

"If you put the derivative and the integral in a cage and had them fight to the death, which would win? Although this question makes no sense, as concepts don't know the first thing about hand-to-hand combat, a version of this question has plagued mathematics for centuries. Which is the better concept? In this, dare we say educational, but at the very least entertaining debate, Professors Colin Adams and Tom Garrity do their utmost to defend respectively the derivative and the integral, while embarrassing each other publicly, in an attempt to settle this question once and for all...Appropriate for students, teachers, and lovers of calculus everywhere." -- Container.
