9. INDEFINITE INTEGRALS
Let us consider a function f : IR IR: x f ( x).
The function F is an antiderivative of f if F ( x) f ( x) , or dF ( x) f ( x) dx .
Let f : x x 4 .
A few antiderivatives of f are:
The derivative in a point
5.1.1. A rate of change
When a train travels 108 km in a time interval [t1,t2] = [0,8;2,3].of (=90 min = 1,5 h) we

conclude that its average velocity was v
The concept limit allows us to investigate the behaviour of a function in the close
neighbourhood of a point. The functional value in this point is not important here.

4. TRANSCENDENTAL FUNCTIONS
The trigonometric functions are important because they are periodic, or repeating, and
therefore model many naturally occurring periodic processes, e.g. a mass attached to a
string, the pendulum, an
8. COMPLEX NUMBERS
8.1. Definition and operations
Imagination was called upon at least three times in constucting real numbers: first the set
of all integers was constructed from the counting numbers, then the set of rational
numbers was constructed from
2.1. Continuity at a point
Definition: a function f is continuous in a point a if the graph of the functions does not
show a jump in a.
If the function is not continuous in a, it is defined as discontinuous in a.

Integrating f (ax + b) and Integration by Substitution
Question 1: Find the antiderivative of each function with respect to x:
F ( x) sin( 2 x 3)
F ( x) (3 x 5) 6
Question 2: Integrate with respect to x:
(2 x 3) dx
Question 3: What does the second derivative of a function tell you about a function?
The first derivative of a function tells us the rate at which a function changes. If the first
derivative is positive over some interval, then the values on the function

Conics are curves that are produced when a double cone is intersected by a plane. The 3
main types of conics are:
Ellipse (including the circle which is a special case)
