www.mathsrevision.com On a straight line the gradient remains constant, however with curves the gradient changes continually, and the gradient at any point is in fact the same as the gradient of the tangent at that point. The sides of the half-pipe are very steep(S) but it is not very steep near the base(B). B S Gradients & Curves Higher Outcome 3 Demo

www.mathsrevision.com A Gradient of tangent = gradient of curve at A B Gradient of tangent = gradient of curve at B Gradients & Curves Higher Outcome 3 Demo

www.mathsrevision.com Gradients & Curves Higher Outcome 3 For the function y = f(x) we do this by taking the point (x, f(x)) and another “very close point” ((x+h), f(x+h)). Then we find the gradient between the two. (x, f(x)) ((x+h), f(x+h)) True gradient Approx gradient To find the gradient at any point on a curve we need to modify the gradient formula

www.mathsrevision.com The gradient is not exactly the same but is quite close to the actual value We can improve the approximation by making the value of h smaller This means the two points are closer together. (x, f(x)) ((x+h), f(x+h)) True gradient Approx gradient Gradients & Curves Higher Outcome 3

www.mathsrevision.com We can improve upon this approximation by making the value of h even smaller. (x, f(x)) ((x+h), f(x+h)) True gradient Approx gradient So the points are even closer together. Gradients & Curves Higher Outcome 3

www.mathsrevision.com Higher Outcome 3 Derivative We have seen that on curves the gradient changes continually and is dependant on the position on the curve. ie the x-value of the given point. The process of finding the gradient is called DIFFERENTIATING or FINDING THE DERIVATIVE (Gradient) Differentiating Finding the GRADIENT Finding the rate of change

www.mathsrevision.com If the formula/equation of the curve is given by f(x) Then the derivative is called f '(x) - “f dash x” There is a simple way of finding f '(x) from f(x). f(x) f '(x) 2x 2 4x 4x 2 8x 5x 10 50x 9 6x 7 42x 6 x 3 3x 2 x 5 5x 4 x 99 99x 98 Derivative Higher Outcome 3 Have guessed the rule yet !

www.mathsrevision.com If f(x) = ax n n - 1 n Rule for Differentiating It can be given by this simple flow diagram... multiply by the power reduce the power by 1 then f '(x) = NB: the following terms & expressions mean the same GRADIENT,DERIVATIVE,RATE OF CHANGE,f '(x) Derivative Higher Outcome 3 ax

www.mathsrevision.com Rule for Differentiating To be able to differentiate it is VERY IMPORTANT that you are comfortable using indices rules Derivative Higher Outcome 3

www.mathsrevision.com Special Points (I) f(x) = ax (Straight line function) If f(x) = ax = ax 1 then f '(x) = 1 X ax 0 = a X 1 = a Index Laws x 0 = 1 So if g(x) = 12x then g '(x) = 12 Also using y = mx + c The line y = 12x has gradient 12, and derivative = gradient !! Higher Outcome 3

www.mathsrevision.com (II) f(x) = a, (Horizontal Line) If f(x) = a = a X 1 = ax 0 then f '(x) = 0 X ax -1 = 0 Index Laws x 0 = 1 So if g(x) = -2 then g '(x) = 0 Also using formula y = c, (see outcome 1 !) The line y = -2 is horizontal so has gradient 0 ! Special Points Higher Outcome 3

www.mathsrevision.com Example 4 h(x) = 5x 2 - 3x + 19so h '(x) = 10x - 3 and h '(-4) = 10 X (-4) - 3 = -40 - 3 = -43 Example 5 k(x) = 5x 4 - 2x 3 + 19x - 8, find k '(10). k '(x) = 20x 3 - 6x 2 + 19 So k '(10) = 20 X 1000 - 6 X 100 + 19 = 19419 Derivative Higher Outcome 3

www.mathsrevision.com Example 6 : Find the points on the curve f(x) = x 3 - 3x 2 + 2x + 7 where the gradient is 2. NB: gradient = derivative = f '(x) We need f '(x) = 2 ie 3x 2 - 6x + 2 = 2 or 3x 2 - 6x = 0 ie 3x(x - 2) = 0 ie 3x = 0 or x - 2 = 0 so x = 0 or x = 2 Now using original formula f(0) = 7 f(2) = 8 -12 + 4 + 7 = 7 Points are (0,7) & (2,7) Derivative Higher Outcome 3

www.mathsrevision.com If y is expressed in terms of x then the derivative is written as dy / dx. Leibniz Notation Leibniz Notation is an alternative way of expressing derivatives to f'(x), g'(x), etc. eg y = 3x 2 - 7x so dy / dx = 6x - 7. Example 19 Find dQ / dR NB: Q = 9R 2 - 15R -3 So dQ / dR = 18R + 45R -4 = 18R + 45 R 4 Q = 9R 2 - 15 R 3 Higher Outcome 3

www.mathsrevision.com Example 20 A curve has equation y = 5x 3 - 4x 2 + 7. Find the gradient where x = -2 ( differentiate ! ) gradient = dy / dx = 15x 2 - 8x if x = -2 then gradient = 15 X (-2) 2 - 8 X (-2) = 60 - (-16) = 76 Leibniz Notation Higher Outcome 3

www.mathsrevision.com Newton’s 2 nd Law of Motion s = ut + 1 / 2 at 2 where s = distance & t = time. Finding ds / dt means “diff in dist”  “diff in time” ie speed or velocity so ds / dt = u + at but ds / dt = v so we getv = u + at and this is Newton’s 1st Law of Motion Real Life Example Physics Higher Outcome 3

www.mathsrevision.com A(a,b) y = mx +c y = f(x) Equation of Tangents tangent NB: at A(a, b) gradient of line = gradient of curve gradient of line = m (from y = mx + c ) gradient of curve at (a, b) = f (a) it follows that m = f (a) Higher Outcome 3

www.mathsrevision.com Higher Outcome 3 Equation of Tangents Example 21 Find the equation of the tangent line to the curve y = x 3 - 2x + 1 at the point where x = -1. Point: if x = -1 then y = (-1) 3 - (2 X -1) + 1 = -1 - (-2) + 1 = 2point is (-1,2) Gradient: dy / dx = 3x 2 - 2 when x = -1 dy / dx = 3 X (-1) 2 - 2 = 3 - 2 = 1 m = 1 Straight line so we need a point plus the gradient then we can use the formula y - b = m(x - a).

www.mathsrevision.com Now using y - b = m(x - a) we gety - 2 = 1( x + 1) or y - 2 = x + 1 or y = x + 3 point is (-1,2) m = 1 Equation of Tangents Higher Outcome 3

www.mathsrevision.com Example 22 Find the equation of the tangent to the curve y = 4 x 2 at the point where x = -2. (x  0) Also find where the tangent cuts the X-axis and Y-axis. Point:when x = -2 then y = 4 (-2) 2 = 4 / 4 = 1 point is (-2, 1) Gradient:y = 4x -2 so dy / dx = -8x -3 = -8 x 3 when x = -2 then dy / dx = -8 (-2) 3 = -8 / -8 = 1 m = 1 Equation of Tangents Higher Outcome 3

www.mathsrevision.com Now using y - b = m(x - a) we get y - 1 = 1( x + 2) or y - 1 = x + 2 or y = x + 3 AxesTangent cuts Y-axis when x = 0 so y = 0 + 3 = 3at point (0, 3) Tangent cuts X-axis when y = 0 so 0 = x + 3 or x = -3at point (-3, 0) Equation of Tangents Higher Outcome 3

www.mathsrevision.com Example 23 - (other way round) Find the point on the curve y = x 2 - 6x + 5 where the gradient of the tangent is 14. gradient of tangent = gradient of curve dy / dx = 2x - 6 so2x - 6 = 14 2x = 20x = 10 Put x = 10 into y = x 2 - 6x + 5 Givingy = 100 - 60 + 5= 45 Point is (10,45) Equation of Tangents Higher Outcome 3

www.mathsrevision.com Increasing & Decreasing Functions and Stationary Points Consider the following graph of y = f(x) ….. X y = f(x) abcdef+ + + + + - - 0 0 0 Higher Outcome 3

www.mathsrevision.com In the graph of y = f(x) The function is increasing if the gradient is positive i.e. f (x) > 0 when x < b or d < x < f or x > f. The function is decreasing if the gradient is negative and f (x) < 0 when b < x < d. The function is stationary if the gradient is zero and f (x) = 0 when x = b or x = d or x = f. These are called STATIONARY POINTS. At x = a, x = c and x = e the curve is simply crossing the X-axis. Increasing & Decreasing Functions and Stationary Points Higher Outcome 3

www.mathsrevision.com Example 24 For the function f(x) = 4x 2 - 24x + 19 determine the intervals when the function is decreasing and increasing. f (x) = 8x - 24 f(x) decreasing when f (x) < 0 so 8x - 24 < 0 8x < 24 x < 3 f(x) increasing when f (x) > 0so 8x - 24 > 0 8x > 24 x > 3 Check: f (2) = 8 X 2 – 24 = -8 Check: f (4) = 8 X 4 – 24 = 8 Increasing & Decreasing Functions and Stationary Points Higher Outcome 3

www.mathsrevision.com Example 25 For the curve y = 6x – 5/x 2 Determine if it is increasing or decreasing when x = 10. = 6x - 5x -2 so dy / dx = 6 + 10x -3 when x = 10 dy / dx = 6 + 10 / 1000 = 6.01 Since dy / dx > 0 then the function is increasing. Increasing & Decreasing Functions and Stationary Points y = 6x - 5 x 2 = 6 + 10 x 3 Higher Outcome 3

www.mathsrevision.com Example 26 Show that the function g(x) = 1 / 3 x 3 -3x 2 + 9x -10 is never decreasing. g (x) = x 2 - 6x + 9 = (x - 3)(x - 3)= (x - 3) 2 Since (x - 3) 2  0 for all values of x then g (x) can never be negative so the function is never decreasing. Squaring a negative or a positive value produces a positive value, while 0 2 = 0. So you will never obtain a negative by squaring any real number.

www.mathsrevision.com Example 27 Determine the intervals when the function f(x) = 2x 3 + 3x 2 - 36x + 41 is (a) Stationary (b) Increasing (c) Decreasing. f (x) = 6x 2 + 6x - 36 = 6(x 2 + x - 6) = 6(x + 3)(x - 2) Function is stationary when f (x) = 0 ie 6(x + 3)(x - 2) = 0 ie x = -3 or x = 2 Increasing & Decreasing Functions and Stationary Points Higher Outcome 3

www.mathsrevision.com We now use a special table of factors to determine when f (x) is positive & negative. x-32 f’(x) + Function increasing when f (x) > 0ie x < -3 or x > 2 Function decreasing when f (x) < 0ie -3 < x < 2 Increasing & Decreasing Functions and Stationary Points Higher Outcome 3 - 0 + 0

www.mathsrevision.com This curve y = f(x) has three types of stationary point. When x = a we have a maximum turning point (max TP) When x = b we have a minimum turning point (min TP) When x = c we have a point of inflexion (PI) Each type of stationary point is determined by the gradient ( f(x) ) at either side of the stationary value.

In this section we shall concentrate on the important details to be found in a small section of graph. Suppose we consider any graph between the points where x = a and x = b (i.e. a  x  b) then the following graphs illustrate where we would expect to find the maximum & minimum values.

www.mathsrevision.com Optimization Note: Optimum basically means the best possible. In commerce or industry production costs and profits can often be given by a mathematical formula. Optimum profit is as high as possible so we would look for a max value or max TP. Optimum production cost is as low as possible so we would look for a min value or min TP. Higher Outcome 3
