3.3 Rules for Differentiation

Colorado National Monument

slide2

The derivative of a constant is zero.

If the derivative of a function is its slope, then for a constant function, the derivative must be zero.

example:

slide3

(Pascal’s Triangle)

If we find derivatives with the difference quotient:

We observe a pattern:

slide4

We observe a pattern:

power rule

examples:

slide5

constant multiple rule:

examples:

When we used the difference quotient, we observed that since the limit had no effect on a constant coefficient, that the constant could be factored to the outside.

slide6

constant multiple rule:

sum and difference rules:

(Each term is treated separately)

slide7

Horizontal tangents occur when slope = zero.

Example:

Find the horizontal tangents of:

Plugging the x values into the original equation, we get:

(The function is even, so we only get two horizontal tangents.)

slide14

product rule:

Notice that this is not just the product of two derivatives.

This is sometimes memorized as:

slide16

is the first derivative of y with respect to x.

is the second derivative.

is the third derivative.

is the fourth derivative.

Higher Order Derivatives:

(y double prime)

We will learn later what these higher order derivatives are used for.
