Unformatted text preview: MCV4U Derivative Strategies Continued Name: Date: Review n 1.) Power rule: for any polynomial term like y = ax , the derivative (where a is a numeric coefficient) dy = dx 2.) Product rule: for pair of expression multiplied by each other such as y = ( f(x) )( g(x) ) then the derivative will be … dy = dx n 3.) Power of a function: for a function that is raised to an exponent such as y = a( k(x) ) then the derivative will be … dy = dx 4.) Combinations: for a combination of the above, use ____________ to decide which derivative rule should be applied and when. Quotient Rule: We can choose between converting to a familiar form or use a new strategy. Example: Find a rate of change expression (derivative) for Version 1: Rewrite as a denominator with a “­1” power. Then apply product rule (with P.o.a.F.) Conclusion: if then the derivative or will be: 1 ...
