2. Exponential Form?
3. Derivative of e
4. Derivatives of Logarithmic Functions
5. Derivative of the natural log function
6. What are Critical Numbers?
For a function F are those numbers c in the domain of F for which f'(c)=0 or f'(c) does not exist.
7. Method for Intervals where increasing and decreasing
• 1. Find the derivative
• 2. Find the critical numbers
• 3. Place critical numbers and undefined values of number line
• 4. Test values in each interval (Plug into f'(x).)
• 5. Increaing intervals are where f'(x)>0
• Decreasing invervals are where f'(x)<0
8. How to find the Absolute Extrema
