I. CONCEPTS, DEFINITIONS, THEOREMS AND FORMULAS A. THE DERIVATIVE a.1. Definition: Let y = f(x). If ∆x is any increment given to the independent variable x and ∆y is the corresponding increment in the dependent variable y, then the derivative of the function, y = f(x), with respect to x is the limit of the ratio of ∆y to ∆x as ∆x approaches zero, or

1. The derivative

of the function y = f(x) geometrically represents

the slope of the tangent line at any point on the curve defined by y = f(x), or (6) 2. The equation of the tangent line on y = f(x) at the point P1(x1, y1), by the point-slope form, is

1.

The maximum/minimum value of the function y = f(x), is the value of the function which Is larger/smaller than the values of the function in its immediate vicinity or neighborhood.

2. Test for a Maximum at the point x = x1: f’(x1) = 0

and

f’’(x1) < 0.

and

f’’(x1) > 0.
