definition of a critical value

f'(c)=0 or if f'(c) does not exist than c is called a critical value of f


Test for increasing and Decreasing Functions

1. a function f is increasing on an interval if f'(x) > 0 on that interval
2. A function f is decreasing on an interval if f'(x)<0 on that interval 

First Derivative Test= relative minimum

C=critical value of a function f
1.If f'(x) changes from negative to positive at c, then f(c) is a relative minimum of f 

First Derivative test= relative maximum

C= critical value of a function f
if f'(c) changes from positive to negative at c, then f (c) is a relative maximum of f 

First derivative test= no relative max or min

f'(x) does not change signs at c


relative extrema

relative extrema only occur at critical values but all critical values are not necessarily relative extrema


Extreme Value Theorum

If f is continuous on the closed interval [a,b], then f has botha minimum and a maximum on the interval


Finding extrema on a closed interval

1. find values of f at the critical numbers of f in (a,b)
2. Find the values of f at the ENDPOINTS of the interval 3. the least of these values is the minimum, the greatst is the maximum 

Test for concavity=concave up

if f''(x)>0 for all x in an open interval I, then the graph of f is concave upward on I


Test for concavity= concave down

if f''(x)<0 for all x in an open interval I, then the graph of f is concave downward on I


definition of points of inflection

a point P on a curve y=f(x) is called a point of inflection if f is continues on P and the curve changes from concave upward to concave downward or vice versa
If (c, f(c)_ is a point of inflection of the graph of f, then either f''(x)=0 or f is not differentiable at x=c 

Second Derivative test= relative minimum

f'(c)=0 and f''(x) exists on an open interval containing c
1. if f''(c)>0, the f(c) is a relative minimum 

Second derivative test= relative maximum

f'(c)=0 and f''(x) exists on an open interval containing c
if f''(c) <0, then f(c) is a relative maximum 

Second Derivative test=failed

f'(c)=0 and f''(x) exists on an open interval containing c
if f''(c)=0 the test fails use the first derivative test 

sketching a curve

1. domain
2. intercepts 3. symmetry 4. asymptote 5. intervals of increasing or decreasing 6. relative maximum and relative minimum 7. points of inflection and concavity 

domain

what are the values of x for which f(x) is defined


intercepts

x intercept= let y=0 and solve for x
y intercept= let x=0 and solve for y 

symmetry on the y axis

if f(x)=f(x) then f is an even function and the curve is symmetric about the Y AXIS


symmetry about the origin

if f(x)=f(x) then f is an odd function and the curve is symmetric about the origin


symmetry around the xaxis

when replacing y by y yields an equivalent equation the curve is symetric about the x axis


maximum or minimum value of a certain quantity is called...

optimization


optimization guidlines

1. draw a picture
2. assign a variable to the unknown quantity and write an equation for the quantity that is to be maximized or minimized 3. Use the given information to find a relationship between the variables. use these equations to eliminate all but one variable in the equation 4. use the first and second derivative tests to find critical points 

tangent line approximation

line tangent to a curve at a point is the line that best approximates the curve near that point
tangent line at point (c, f(c)) as approximation to the curve y=f(x) when x is near c 

tangent line approximation equation

yf(c)=f'(c)*(xc) or y=f(c)+f'(c)*(xc)

express f'(x) as a limit

express f'(a) as a limit

f'(x)= lim as h>0 f(a+h)f(a)/h


express f'(a) as limit approaches a

when is a function differentiable
