Analyze correctly and solve properly application problems concerning the derivatives to include writing equation of tangent/normal line, curve tracing ( including all types of algebraic curves and cusps), optimization problems, rate of change and related-rates problems (time-rate problems).

Recall: The Derivative of a function When the concept of the derivative was introduced in the earlier discussion, it was defined as follows: DEFINITION: The derivative of at point P on the curve is equal to the slope of the tangent line at P; thus the derivative of the function with respect to x at any x in its domain is defined as: ) ( x f y ) ( x f y 0 0 ( ) ( ) lim lim x x dy y f x x f x dx x x       provided the limit exists.

Δ? , which gives the average change of y per unit change in x . However, as Q gets closer and closer to P , ∆? decreases and approaches zero.

A function may be single-variable, ? = 𝑓(?) ,or multi-variable, ? = 𝑓(?, ?, … ) . Regardless of the function being single-variable or multi-variable, at times, there is a need to investigate how the function would change in relation to changes in its independent variable/variables or how fast the dependent variable would change at the particular instant the independent variable or variables assume a particular value ( instantaneous rate of change of the dependent variable with respect to its independent variables; general related-rate problems). Also, there are many functions in which the concern is on knowing how fast the variables ( both dependent and independent variables) are changing with respect to time (time-rate problems). It is not necessary to express each of these variables directly as function of time. For example, we are given an equation involving the variables x and y, and that both x and y are functions of the third variable t, where t denotes time.

Both sides of the equation can be differentiated with respect to time t , applying implicit differentiation and the chain rule

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
