\[\delta \]

The d with a squiggle, as in your last post, just means 'a little bit of...', whilst d (no squiggle) means 'an infinitely small bit of...' (or 'as d(squiggle)... approaches 0' (ie- gets infinitely small))

So if you travelled 20m in 5 seconds: \[\delta(metres)/\delta(seconds)= 20/5\] Delta basically means 'change in' (in this case, distance and time)
