Instantaneous Rate of Change

Sections 3.1-3.3

Section 4.1

- Defined equations in terms of their changes
- e.g., exponential constant percentage change

- Will use this concept motivate derivatives

- Rate of change
- Difference between two values

- Percentage change
- Difference between two values as a percentage of the original value

- Average change
- Change per unit of time

- Ex: r(t) = pool sales

- Rate of change
- Percent change
- Average change

Rate of change from April to August

Rate of change

Rate of change from April to August

r(8) - r(4)

Average rate of change from April to August

r(8) - r(4)

Average rate of change from April to August

r(8) - r(4)

- Pg 167: 1, 2, 4, 6, 7, 8, 10

Average rate of change from April to August

Average rate of change from April to August

rise

run

Average change between two points

Slope of the secant line between the two points

=

- Rate of change at this instant
- Average rate of change over an infinitesimally small range

- Tangent line
- Secant line that touches the graph at the point evaluated

The instantaneous rate of change is the slope of the tangent line at the point evaluated

- Local linearity
- Zoom in enough and anything looks like a line.

- Tangent lines don’t intersect graph at the point of tangency, but
- Tangent lines can intersect graph at other points

- Concave Down

- Concave Up

- Exists only where you have a continuous function
- Does not exist at breakpoints

Derivative

- Notation

“Derivative of f with respect to x”

- Ex: Profit versus number of employees
- p(t) = 20*ln(t)
