Unformatted text preview: 1 Math Review (to fill in the blanks please watch the corresponding Podcast; feel free to watch as many times as you want) I. Calculus A. Introduction Let y=f(x) Spse f(x) looks like: Derivative ( ) x x f x x f x f dx dy x - - ) ( ) ( lim Think change in y over change in x where the change in x is really small 2 B. Rules for differentiation 1. Constant (multiplied by a function) ( ) ( ) x ag x f y = = ( ) ( ) x g a x f dx dy = = 2. Sum of two functions ( ) ( ) ( ) x h x g x f y + = = ( ) ( ) ( ) x h x g x f dx dy + = = 3. Product Rule ( ) ( ) ( ) x h x g x f y = = ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) x h x g x h x g x f dx dy + = = 4. Quotient Rule ( ) ( ) ( ) x h x g x f y = = ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) [ ] 2 x h x h x g x h x g x f dx dy - = = 5. Chain Rule ( ) ( ) ( ) [ ] x h g y x h z z g y = = = , ( ) ( ) [ ] ( ) x h x h g dx dz dz dy x f dx dy = = = 3 C. Rules for special functional forms 1. Constant ( ) a x f y = = ( ) = = x f dx dy 2. Power function ( ) b ax x f y = = ( ) 1- = = b abx x f dx dy 3. Logs (note even when economists say logs they mean natural logs) ( ) ( ) x g x f y ln = = ( ) ( ) ( ) x g x g x f dx dy = = 4. Exponents (a) ( ) ( ) x g a x f y = = ( ) ( ) ( ) a x g a x f dx dy x g ln = = (b) ( ) ( ) x g e x f y = = ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) x g e e x g e x f dx dy x g x g = = = ln 4 D. Examples 1. ( ) 5 2 3 7 2 3 + + + = = x x x x f y ( ) ( ) ( ) 2 3 2 7 3 1 2 + + = = x x x f dx dy 2. ( ) ( ) b ax x f y- = = ln ( ) b ax a x f dx dy- = = 3. ( ) e x x f y 4 5 2- = = ( ) ) 10 ( 4 5 2 x x f dx dy e x- = = 4. ( ) ( ) 7 ln 2 1 + = = x x x f y ( ) ( ) 7 1 7 ln 2 1 2 1 2 1 + + + = =- x x x x x f dx dy 5....
