3 The Gradient of growth Functions of this type, with a > 1, are called functions. We’ve already met the function e.g. Autograph demo

4 The Gradient of We will now investigate the gradient of Notice first that as x increases, y increases e.g. x x x x x x Autograph demo

5 The Gradient of gradient Notice first that as x increases, y increases... and the also increases e.g. x x x x x x The gradient function xx x x x x We will now investigate the gradient of looksIt the same as but...

6 The Gradient of We will now investigate the gradient of e.g. x The gradient function x e.g. gradient Notice first that as x increases, y increases... and the also increases

7 The Gradient of What do you think will happen if we repeat the process for ? Well, goes up more steeply than so we get a similar result but the gradient function is above the curve. Putting the 2 graphs on the same axes...

8 The Gradient of It can be shown that So, suggesting that there is a value of a between 2 and 3 where the gradient of is equal to. The 1 st gradient graph is under the original curve... and the 2 nd is above the curve...

9 The Gradient ofgradient of equals The value of a where the is an irrational number, written as e, where

10 The Gradient of Using a letter for an irrational number isn’t a new idea to you. gradient of equals The value of a where the is an irrational number, written as e, where You have used  ( the Greek p ) for

11 The Gradient ofgradient of equals The value of a where the is an irrational number, written as e, where

12 More Indices and Logs The function contains the index x, so x is a log. BUT the base of the log is e not 10, so ( since an index is a log ) We write as ( n for natural ) so, Logs with a base e are called natural logs We know that

13 The Inverse of We can sketch the inverse by reflecting in y = x. is a one-to-one function so has an inverse function. Finding the equation of the inverse function is easy! So, N.B. The domain is. So Forwards x  e it  = f(x) Backwards opposite of e it is ln it Autograph demo

14 SUMMARY is a growth function. (3 d.p.) At every point on, the gradient equals y : The inverse of is ( log with base e ) is defined for x > 0 only

15 Can you suggest equations for the unlabelled graphs below? Both graphs are stretches of. HINT:

16 This... is a stretch with scale factor 2 parallel to the y -axis. The equation is

17 This... is a stretch with scale factor parallel to the x -axis. The equation is

20 More Indices and Logs The function contains the index x, so x is a log. BUT the base of the log is e not 10, so We know that ( since an index is a log ) We write as ( n for natural ) so, Logs with a base e are called natural logs

21 SUMMARY is a growth function. (3 d.p.) At every point on, the gradient equals y : The inverse of is ( log with base e ) is defined for x > 0 only
