11
Find gradient at particular point Substitute the x-value for that point into the expression for dy/dx. Substitute the x-value for that point into the expression for dy/dx. With implicit functions, you will need the x and y values. With implicit functions, you will need the x and y values.

12
Find tangent or normal A tangent or normal is a straight line (y = mx + c). A tangent or normal is a straight line (y = mx + c). For the tangent, m is the gradient at that point. For the tangent, m is the gradient at that point. For the normal, m is For the normal, m is

13
Find turning points and their nature (min/max) Turning pt is when dy/dx=0 Turning pt is when dy/dx=0 To determine nature: To determine nature: 1.Use 2 nd derivative test If d 2 y/dx 2 : –> 0, local minimum –< 0, local maximum –= 0, test inconclusive – could be min, max or point of inflection 2.Examine gradient on either side of the point. Use this method if finding the 2 nd derivative is too hard or if the test was inconclusive.

Find turning points and their nature (min/max)

15
Points of inflection A point of inflection is the point on a curve when it changes from concave- up to concave-down, or vice-versa. A point of inflection is the point on a curve when it changes from concave- up to concave-down, or vice-versa. This is the point when the second derivative, d 2 y/dx 2, equals zero
