Lecture Sections Objectives Assignment 11 2.6 Higher-Order Derivatives 2.6: 1-39 eoo. 43, 47, 51-57 Understanding Goals: 1. To understand the definition of higher-order derivatives. 2. To understand how to use the position functions to determine the velocity and acceleration of moving objects. Notation for Higher-Order Derivatives First derivative: ', y '( ), f x dy dx , [ ] ( ) d f x dx , [ ] x D y Second derivative: ", y "( ), f x 2 2 d y dx , [ ] 2 2 ( ) d f x dx , [ ] 2 x D y Third derivative: '", y '"( ), f x 3 3 d y dx , [ ] 3 3 ( ) d f x dx , [ ] 3 x D y Fourth derivative: (4) , y (4) ( ), f x 4 4 d y dx , [ ] 4 4 ( ) d f x dx , [ ] 4 x D y . . . nth derivative: ( ) , n y ( ) ( ), n f x n n d y dx , [ ] ( ) n n d f x dx , [ ] n x D y The n th-order derivative of an n th-degree polynomial function 1 1 1 0 ( ) n n n n f x a x a x a x a - - = + + + + is the constant function ( ) ( ) ! n n f x n a = . Each derivative of order higher than n is the zero function. Example 1 : Find the fourth derivative of
