students. To justify answers andearn partial credit, show work in the spaces provided on this document. MG3 is due at the start of ciass on Friday 9/23/11. Late papers will be penalized on a
case—byncasc basis, but typically a one letter grade (10%) penalty per day. Derive 6 Remarks: Once an expression in one variable [like I or x] has been authored, it can be assigned
function notation as follows. Rightclick the expression, Copy, click the Author menu, choose
Function Definition, type the desired function notation [like s{!) or f(x)] in the Function Nameand . Arguments field, rightclick in the Function Definition field, and paste the expression there. When you
click OK the function notation and expression appear with the := symbol instead of a regular : symbol.
From this point forward in your Derive session, the software be able to simply 01' evaluate function
notation expressions that you author, like f(2) or f(2+h). Also be aware that you can get the decimal form for an exact numerical result by highlighting it and clicking the icon. Tangent Line Slopes; Instantaneous Velocity; ri‘he Derivative For a function given by y = f (x), the average rate of change of f over the interval a 5 x5 39 is

way, f is differentiable at all x«values that are in the domain of f ’. As it turns out, a function
will fail to be differentiable wherever f has points of discontinuity, cusps, or vertical tangents.
We say... f is nondifferentiable at points of discontinuity, cusps, or vertical tangents. 1. Suppose a ball is dropped from the top of the CN Tower in Toronto, 450 meters above the ground.
3(1) = 450— 4.9;2 gives the ball’s position (height) above the ground at time t seconds, ignoring air resistance. We wish to first estimate, and eventually find exactly the instantaneous velocity at time I = 5 seconds.

s(5+h)—s(5) a) Since the ball is falling, its position relative to the ground is
decreasing, so average velocity is a negative quantity. Complete the table to show average velocity over smaller time intervals.
