Unformatted text preview: identify the
interval over which a function is
increasing, decreasing, or equal to zero
Describe a local maximum as the point
in which the derivative changes from
positive to negative
Describe a local minimum as the point
in which the derivative changes from
negative to positive
Use the second derivative to determine
concavity
Construct sign charts to organize
information about a function and its
derivative
Sketch a function given information
about the derivative or the graph of the
derivative itself
Justify conclusions about the original
function and its extrema using calculus
concepts
Recall the relationships between a
function and the first and second
derivative
Practice using the general formula for
antiderivative: f(x) = x n+1/(n +1)

Course Objective(s)
Introduce integration by
estimating “area under a
curve” Student Objectives
• •
•
• Describe the indefinite integral
and all associated concepts •
•
• Estimate area using Rectangular
Approximation: Right and Left
Riemann Sums and ‘Midpoint’
Approximation
Estimate area using Trapezoidal
Approximation
Given the actual area, find the error
using the above methods as well as
Simpson’s Rule
Develop and comprehend Riemann’s
summation for actual area: the
number of rectangular subdivisions
approaches infinity and the width of
each rectangle (change in x)
approaches ‘0’
Connect Riemann’s summation to
Leibnitz’s integral notation
Understand all components of the
indefinite integral: limits,
integrand, dx, “+ C”
Describe basic integration in terms
of the “antiderivative” and apply
properties: using constants,
splitting an integral, reversing
limits, etc. NJ CCCS Strands &
