2 Objectives Describe what the first derivative yields. Find the first derivative of functions. Write equations of the line tangent to a curve.

3 Introductory Videos Brainpop.com o Calculus Khan Academy o Calculus (Derivatives 1) Section 19A-F – Introduction to Calculus

4 Consider point A (a, f(a)) and point B (x, f(x)) slope of the tangent line at A

5 Main Ideas: The derivative of a curve at a point is the slope of the tangent line at that point. The derivative function is the function that represents the slopes of all the tangents throughout the entire curve.

6 Graphing Example 1

7 Graphing Example 2 What is the function or equation for this graph? What is the derived function of this graph? What would that function look like? What would that function represent?

8 name of original functionname of derivative function f(x)f(x)f’(x) yy' y Notation and Terminology Differentiation is the process of finding the derivative or the derivative function (the slope function). Notation

9 FunctionDerivative Function f(x) = x f’(x) = f(x) = x 2 f’(x) = f(x) = x 3 f’(x) = f(x) = x 4 f’(x) = f(x) = x 5 f’(x) = f(x) = x -1 f’(x) = f(x) = x -2 f’(x) = f(x) = x -3 f’(x) = f(x) = f’(x) = f(x) = f’(x) =

10 Rules (Page 615) f(x)f’(x)in words: a0 The derivative of a constant is zero. xnxn nx n-1 Bring down the power, subtract one from the power. ax n anx n-1 Multiply by the coefficient (same as above). u(x) + v(x)u’(x) + v’(x) The derivative of the sum is the sum of the derivatives.

11 Find the first and second derivative of f(x) = 3x 4 + 2x 3 – 5x 2 + 7x + 6 Example 1

12 Find the first and second derivative of f(x) = 5x 3 + 6x 2 – 3x+ 2 Example 2

13 Find the derivative of Hint: First rewrite the function, then take the derivative. Example 3

14 Find the slope function of Hint: First rewrite the function, then take the derivative. Example 4

15 a) Find the gradient function of and then find: b) gradient of the tangent to the function where x = 2. c) equation of the tangent when x = 2. Example 5

16 a) Find the gradient function of and then find: The gradient function is the first derivative. Now find the gradient when x = 2. Therefore, m = 5 Finally, find the equation of the line. You need a point. We already have the slope. So, the point is (2, 2) and the slope is 5. Therefore, the equation of the tangent at x = 2 is y = 5x – 8. b) gradient of the tangent to the function where x = 2. c) equation of the tangent when x = 2. Example 5 Answer

17 Find the equation of the tangent to f(x) = x at the point where x = 1 Example 6

18 Find the equations of any horizontal tangents to y = x 3 – 12x + 2 Example 7

19 Summary The rate of change at a point is the slope of the tangent line at that point. The slope of the tangent line at that point is known as the derivative. Therefore: – rate of change = slope of tangent line = derivative
