Higher
On a straight line the gradient remains constant,
however with curves the gradient changes
continually, and the gradient at any point is in
fact the same as the gradient of the tangent at
that point.

The sides of the half-pipe are very steep(S) but
it is not very steep near the base(B).

To find the gradient at any point on a curve we
need to modify the gradient formula
Higher
For the function y f(x) we do this by taking
the point (x, f(x)) and another very close
point ((xh), f(xh)).
Then we find the gradient between the two.
((xh), f(xh))
(x, f(x))
5
Higher
The gradient is not exactly the same but is
quite close to the actual value
We can improve the approximation by making the
value of h smaller
This means the two points are closer together.
((xh), f(xh))
(x, f(x))
6
Higher
We can improve upon this approximation by
making the value of h even smaller.
So the points are even closer together.
Demo
((xh), f(xh))
(x, f(x))

Derivative
Higher
We have seen that on curves the gradient changes
continually and is dependant on the position on
the curve. ie the x-value of the given point.
Differentiating
The process of finding the gradient is called
Finding the rate of change
DIFFERENTIATING or FINDING THE DERIVATIVE
8
Derivative
Higher
If the formula/equation of the curve is given by
f(x)
Then the derivative is called f '(x) - f

There is a simple way of finding f '(x) from
f(x).

If f(x) ax

then f '(x) 1 X ax0

So if g(x) 12x then g '(x) 12
Also using y mx c

(II) f(x) a, (Horizontal Line)

If f(x) a

then f '(x) 0 X ax-1

So if g(x) -2 then g '(x) 0
Also using formula y c , (see outcome 1
!)
The line y -2 is horizontal so has gradient

Leibniz Notation
Higher
Leibniz Notation is an alternative way of
expressing derivatives to f'(x) , g'(x) , etc.
If y is expressed in terms of x then the
derivative is written as dy/dx .
eg y 3x2 - 7x
so dy/dx 6x - 7 .
Example 19
Find dQ/dR
NB Q 9R2 - 15R-3
So dQ/dR 18R 45R-4

Now using y - b m(x - a)

we get y - 2 1( x 1)

Now using y - b m(x - a)

Tangent cuts Y-axis when x 0
so y 0 3 3

Increasing Decreasing Functions and
Stationary Points
Higher
In the graph of y f(x)
The function is increasing if the gradient is
positive
i.e. f ? (x) gt 0 when x lt b or d lt x lt f
or x gt f .
The function is decreasing if the gradient is
negative
and f ? (x) lt 0 when b lt x lt d .
The function is stationary if the gradient is zero
and f ? (x) 0 when x b or x d
or x f .
These are called STATIONARY POINTS.
At x a, x c and x e the curve is
simply crossing the X-axis.
53
Increasing Decreasing Functions and
Stationary Points
Higher
Example 24
For the function f(x) 4x2 - 24x 19
determine the intervals when the function is
decreasing and increasing.
f ? (x) 8x - 24
so 8x - 24 lt 0
f(x) decreasing when f ? (x) lt 0
8x lt 24
x lt 3
Check f ? (2) 8 X 2 24 -8
f(x) increasing when f ? (x) gt 0
so 8x - 24 gt 0

8x gt 24
Check f ? (4) 8 X 4 24 8
x gt 3

Increasing Decreasing Functions and

Example 25
For the curve y 6x 5/x2
Determine if it is increasing or decreasing when
x 10.
6x - 5x-2
so dy/dx 6 10x-3
when x 10 dy/dx 6 10/1000
6.01
Since dy/dx gt 0 then the function is
increasing.
55
Increasing Decreasing Functions and

Example 26
Show that the function g(x) 1/3x3 -3x2 9x
-10 is never decreasing.
g ?(x) x2 - 6x 9
(x - 3)(x - 3)
(x - 3)2
Squaring a negative or a positive value produces
a positive value, while 02 0. So you will
never obtain a negative by squaring any real
number.
Since (x - 3)2 ? 0 for all values of x then
g ?(x) can never be negative so the function
is never decreasing.

Stationary Points and Their Nature

This curve y f(x) has three types of
stationary point.
When x a we have a maximum turning point
(max TP)
When x b we have a minimum turning point
(min TP)
When x c we have a point of inflexion (PI)
Each type of stationary point is determined by
the gradient ( f?(x) ) at either side of the
stationary value.

Curve Sketching

Note A sketch is a rough drawing which
includes important details. It is not an
accurate scale drawing.
Process
(a) Find where the curve cuts the co-ordinate
axes.
for Y-axis put x 0
for X-axis put y 0 then solve.
(b) Find the stationary points determine
their nature as done in previous section.
(c) Check what happens as x ? /- ? .
This comes automatically if (a) (b) are correct.

In the previous section on curve sketching we
dealt with the entire graph.
In this section we shall concentrate on the
important details to be found in a small section
of graph.
Suppose we consider any graph between the points
where x a and x b (i.e. a ? x ? b)
then the following graphs illustrate where we
would expect to find the maximum minimum values.

From the previous three diagrams we should be

found either at the end points or at a stationary
point between the two end points

Note Optimum basically means the best possible.
In commerce or industry production costs and
profits can often be given by a mathematical
formula.
Optimum profit is as high as possible so we would
look for a max value or max TP.
Optimum production cost is as low as possible so
we would look for a min value or min TP.
