TEST 2 REVIEW
Test 2 will be given on Mar 31 (in class) and will cover Sec 2.5, 3.13.3 and 4.14.4.
Chapter 2 Applications of derivatives
•
Sec 2.5 Optimization problems:
–
Sketch and label;
–
Set up the function that you want to ﬁnd max/min of;
–
If there are multiple variables in the function, try to ﬁnd relations between the variables
and use them to eliminate all but one variables in the function;
–
Use derivatives to ﬁnd the max/min and use the max/min to solve the word problem.
Chapter 3/4 Derivative rules
•
Basic Derivatives:
Be familiar with the types of derivative notation used in class. What
is the derivative of a constant? What is the derivative of a variable to a power? What is
the derivative of a constant times an expression? What is the derivative of a sum and/or
diﬀerence?
•
Product and Quotient Rules:
Be familiar with both the product and quotient rules.
•
Chain Rule (including General Power Rule:)
