Increasing decreasing activity 1

Increasing & DecreasingActivity 1

Determine the largest interval on which each function (on the handout) is increasing.

Once you have determined your answers, talk to neighbors about their answers.

Discussion

Discussion

If you used closed intervals for your two previous answers, are you OK with the graph being both increasing and decreasing at x = 1?

Will it confuse your students?

What d o textbooks say

What Do Textbooks Say?

Ostebee & ZornCalculus, 2ndEdition (p.56)

Definition: Let I denote the interval (a, b).

A function fis increasing on Iif

whenever a < x1 < x2 < b.

fis decreasing on Iifwhenever a < x1 < x2 < b.

Fact: If for all x in I, then f increases on I.

If for all x in I, then f decreases on I.

What d o textbooks say1

What Do Textbooks Say?

Hughes-HallettCalculus, 5th edition (p. 165) and

Swokowski Calculus, 2ndedition (p.147)

Let f(x) be continuous on [a, b], and differentiable on (a, b).

If f’(x) > 0 on a < x < b, then f is increasing on .

If f’(x)≥ 0 on a < x < b, then f is non-decreasing on .

What d o textbooks say2

What Do Textbooks Say?

Larson EdwardsCalculus, 5th edition (p. 219)

A function f is increasing on an interval if for any two numbers x1 and x2in the interval, x1 < x2 implies

f(x1) < f(x2).

A function f is decreasing on an interval if for any two numbers x1 and x2in the interval, x1 < x2 implies

f(x1) > f(x2).


The problem with any

The Problem with “Any”

The following function isnot increasing on [a,b].

But it does fit the precedingdefinition.

For the two numbers

x1< x2, f(x1) < f(x2)

should imply that f(x) is

increasing on [a,b].


What d o textbooks say3

What Do Textbooks Say?

Larson EdwardsCalculus, 5th edition (p. 219) (Theorem)

Let f (x) be continuous on [a, b], and differentiable on (a, b).

If f’(x) > 0 for all x in (a, b), then f is increasing on [a, b].

If f’(x) < 0 for all x in (a, b), then f is decreasing on [a, b].

If f’(x) = 0 for all x in (a, b), then f is constant on [a, b].

All textbook examples and the answers in homework are open intervals.


What d o textbooks say4

What Do Textbooks Say?

Cynthia YoungPrecalculus, 1st edition (p. 128)

A function f is increasing on an open interval I if for any x1 and x2 in I, where x1 < x2, then f(x1) < f(x2).

A function f is decreasing on an open intervalI if for any x1 and x2 in I, where x1 < x2, then f(x1) > f(x2).

Apply the definitions

Now determine the largest interval on which the function is increasing for the three new examples.

Be prepared to clicker your choice.

Dudfreney Intervals

We propose this definition for all textbooks at the College Algebra (Pre-Calculus) level and below:

A function f is increasing on an open interval I if for all x1and x2 in I, where x1 < x2, then

f(x1) < f(x2).

A function f is decreasing on an open intervalI if for all x1and x2 in I, where x1 < x2, then

f(x1) > f(x2).
