• MAT 121

• What do we mean when we say we are “determining the limit of a function at a point?”

• Show a graphical and a numerical example to illustrate this.

• Write a sentence or two to tie it all together.

• What is our purpose in determining the derivative of a function? Why bother?

• State the formal definition for the derivative of a function f(x).

Review: Shortcuts for Determining Derivatives (3.1)

MAT 121

• What if the function is a constant function? y = k

• What if the function is a power function? y = xn

• What if the function includes a coefficient? y = cf(x)

• What if the function is the sum or difference of several functions? y = cf(x) + dg(x)

Applications of Derivatives

MAT 121

• What if the function is a constant function? y = k

• The derivative of any constant function is 0:

If y = f(x) = k, then y’ = f’(x) = 0

MAT 121

• What if the function is a power function? y = xn

If y = f(x) = xn, then y’ = f’(x) = nxn-1.

MAT 121

• What if the function includes a coefficient? y=cf(x)

If y = cf(x), then y’ = cf’(x).

MAT 121

• What if the function is the sum or difference of several functions? y=cf(x) + dg(x)

If y = cf(x) + dg(x), then y’ = cf’(x) + dg’(x).

MAT 121

If y = h(x) = f(x)g(x), then

y’ = h’(x) = f’(x)g(x) + f(x)g’(x)

The derivative of a product of two functions is:

The derivative of the first times the second

plus

the first times the derivative of the second.

MAT 121

If:

Then:

The derivative of a quotient of two functions is:

The derivative of the top times the bottom

minus

the top times the derivative of the bottom

All over

The bottom squared.
