NOTE: for a given x -value, f 0 ( x ) gives the slope of the tangent line to the graph of f at the point ( x;f ( x )). ex. Given the graph of f ( x ), sketch a possible graph of its derivative. 6 - ? ± y = f ( x ) 6 - ? ± y = f 0 ( x )

Def. A function f is di±erentiable at x = a if f 0 ( a ) exists. It is di±erentiable on an open interval if it is di±erentiable at each number in the interval. ex. Find each interval for which f ( x ) = x 2 ± x is di±erentiable.

Unformatted text preview: x 2 x > 1 . 6-? What do you note about continuity and dierentia-bility of f ( x ) at x = 1? Theorem: If f is dierentiable at x = a , then f is continuous at x = a . When is a function not dierentiable at a point? 6-? 6-? 6-? Def. The graph of a function f ( x ) has a vertical tangent line at x = a if ex. Find f ( 1) if f ( x ) = ( x + 1) 1 = 3 . ex. Let f ( x ) = j x j . Use the limit denition to show that f ( x ) is not dierentiable at x = 0. ex. Let g ( x ) = x j x j . Show that g ( x ) is both con-tinuous and dierentiable at x = 0. Higher Derivatives If y = f ( x ) is dierentiable, we can nd its deriva-tive, a new function called f 00 ( x ). The limit denition: In the same way, the derivative of f 00 ( x ) is f 000 ( x ), and in general, we denote the n th derivative of f as f n ( x ). Other notation:...
