Lesson 1.2 Calculus

2
Mathematical model:

3
A mathematical description of a real world situation.

4
Mathematical models are often represented as functions.

5
These functions may be linear, quadratic, cubic, etc.

6
A linear function of x means the graph of the function is a line.

7
A linear function of x means the graph of the function is a line. Also the equation could be put in the form of f(x) = mx + b where m = slope and b = y-intercept.

8
A characteristic of linear functions is that they grow at a constant rate.

9
For example, the linear function: f(x) = 3x – 2

10

11
Notice from the table, as x increases by 0.1, the value of f(x) increases by 0.3. We already know that the slope of the graph is 3, but that is also interpreted as the constant rate of change.

12
Example:

13
(a) As dry air moves upward, it expands and cools. If the ground temperature is 20 0 C and the temperature at a height of I km is 10 0 C, express the temperature T(in 0 C) as a function of the height h (in km), assuming that a linear model is appropriate.

14
Example: (b) Draw the graph of the function in part (a). What does the slope represent?

15
Example: (b) Draw the graph of the function in part (a). What does the slope represent?

16
Example: (b) Draw the graph of the function in part (a). What does the slope represent? (c) What is the temperature at a height of 2.5 km?

17
Polynomials:

18
A function P is called a polynomial if where n is a nonnegative integer and the numbers a 0, a 1, a 2, etc are constants, called the coefficients.

19
Polynomials: The degree of a polynomial is the term with the largest exponent (or sum of exponents if more than one variable exists within the term).

20
Polynomials: The degree of a polynomial is the term with the largest exponent (or sum of exponents if more than one variable exists within the term).

21
Polynomials: The degree of a polynomial is the term with the largest exponent (or sum of exponents if more than one variable exists within the term). The above polynomial has degree 6.

22
Examples of quadratic functions: P(x) = ax 2 + bx + c

23

24
Examples of cubic functions: P(x) = ax 3 + bx 2 + cx + d

33
Power Functions: A function in the form of f(x) = x a. If a = n is a odd then,

34
Power Functions: If a = 1/n, where n is a positive integer: f(x) = x 1/n = ?? (This is called the root function)

35
Power Functions: If a = 1/n, where n is a positive integer: f(x) = x 1/n = ?? (This is called the root function)

36
Power Functions: If a = -1, we get what is called the reciprocal function xy = 1 y = 1/x
