**APSC 171 – Calculus 1**Elizabeth Lutton (e.lutton@queensu.ca)**Overview**Derivatives • Basic facts • Power, product, quotient, and chain rules • Implicit differentiation • Logarithmic differentiation • Linear approximations Integrals • Approximations (Reimann sums) • Solving using Fundamental Theorem of Calculus • Substitution • Improper integrals**Overview**• Integration by parts • Partial fractions • Area between curves • Volume (slices and cylinders) • Workproblems • Slope fields • Differential equations Limits:L’Hôpital’s Rule Parametric Equations Last minute notes**Derivatives**Derivatives to memorize: Memory tip: notice that derivatives of “co” functions are negative and “non-co” functions are positive**Derivatives**More derivatives to memorize: Again notice the derivatives of “co” functions are negative and “non-co” functions are positive**Derivatives**And more… Special cases because**Derivatives**Power Rule: Example:**Derivatives**Product Rule: “derivative of the first times the second, plus the first times the derivative of the second” Example: = ? = =**Derivatives**Example: Simplify first! Write everything in terms of sine and cosine = = so we don’t even need the product rule =**Derivatives**Quotient Rule: “derivative of the first times the second, MINUSthe first times the derivative of the second, all over the denominator squared” Compare to Product Rule: Product rule has + instead of – and no denominator**Derivatives**Quotient Rule: Example: = =**Derivatives**Tip: The Product Rule is easier to use than the Quotient Rule, so you can raise the denominator to an exponent of -1 and then use the Product Rule instead of the Quotient Rule Example: same as answer from previous slide**Derivatives**Example: Simplify first! Factor the numerator = = = 2**Derivatives**Moral of the story: Before you do anything, check if you can SIMPLIFY, SIMPLIFY, SIMPLIFY!

How do you know? • Find the tangent slopes of Yes, because y is obviously a function of x b) No, because we are not told that y depends on x in any way; y seems to be a variable not a function. Therefore the answer to this problem is zero.**Derivatives (Implicit)**If in doubt, use implicit differentiation rather than not**Derivatives (Implicit)**Example: Find the tangent slopes of (part a on previous slide) “tangent slopes” means derivatives!**Derivatives**A note on notation: is a VARIABLE is a FUNCTION is the same as y’(x) means “derive the following with respect to x”**Derivatives (Implicit)**Example (question 3 on 2008/2009 final): Calculate the tangent slope to the curve at the point (1,2). Note that you can substitute in values for x and y before solving for . It’s easier this way.**Derivatives (Implicit)**Therefore the tangent slope to the curve at (1,2) is**Derivatives (Logarithmic)**Logarithmic differentiation: when do you use it? • Use when the variable with which you are differentiating with respect to (usually x) is in the base AND the exponent • e.g.**Derivatives (Logarithmic)**Example (question 2 on 2010/2011 final): Find the derivative when**Derivatives (Logarithmic)**Be sure to write everything in terms of x (and not y) in your final answer for logarithmic differentiation questions • See last two steps of previous slide**Derivatives (Linear Approximation)**Linear approximations use the y value f(a) at a point x=a, and the tangent line at x=a to approximate the value of a function**Derivatives (Linear Approximation)**Slope of tangent line at x=a+Δx Slope of tangent line at x=a Tangent line to f(x) at x=a (slope = f’(a))**Derivatives (Linear Approximation)**Memorize this equation:**Derivatives (Linear Approximation)**Example: Approximate the value of 3+e0.2 0.2 is close to 0 so use a=0 Actual value:**Derivatives (Linear Approximation)**Example: A circle has a radius of 12±0.3 mm. Estimate the maximum possible error in the area of the circle the maximum possible error in the area of the circle is mm max error is 0.3 absolute value because error is ±0.3**Optimization**To solve optimization problems: • Translate the given word problem into a mathematical function f(x) • Find the derivative of the function and set it equal to zero to find the x values of the critical points • i.e. the critical points are the solutions to f’(x)=0 • Test the critical points using either the first or second derivative test to see if they are local maximums or minimums**Integrals**Integrals are “signed” or “net” area, which means they can have negative values +**Integrals**The integral on the previous slide could have also been calculated as follows: Area of blue triangle – area of red triangle**Integrals (Approximations)**Left Riemann sum: • Underestimate for increasing functions • Overestimate for decreasing functions http://www.vias.org/calculus/img/04_integration-10.gif**Integrals (Approximations)**Right Riemann sum: • Underestimate for decreasing functions • Overestimate for increasing functions http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Riemann-Sum-right-hand.png**Integrals (Approximations)**Midpoint Riemann sum: • A better approximation than left and right Riemann sums http://www.ltcconline.net/greenl/courses/116/IntegrationApps/riemann.htm**Integrals (Approximations)**Trapezoidal sum: • Uses trapezoids rather than rectangles to approximate the area under a curve • A better approximation than left, right, and midpoint approximations http://www2.seminolestate.edu/lvosbury/CalculusI_Folder/Calc%20I%20exam4.htm**Integrals (Approximations)**Simpson’s Rule: • Uses pieces of parabola to approximate the area under a curve Memorize this formula http://eg1002.pbworks.com/w/page/6607488/Integration**Integrals**Properties of Integrals: This is a rectangle where the width is zero so the area must be zero**Integrals**More properties of integrals: where c is a constant where**Integrals**What’s the difference between a definite and an indefinite integral? • A definite integral has bounds whereas an indefinite integral does not • e.g. is a definite integral in an indefinite integral**Integrals**• When solving indefinite integrals, find the antiderivative of the function • where F(x) is the antiderivative of f(x) (i.e. F’(x) = f(x)) • Don’t forget the +C!!!!!!!!!!!! • e.g. where C is a constant specific to the function**Integrals**Different functions with the same derivative (which is why we need the +C term)**Integrals**• When solving definite integrals, use the second part of the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus • This theorem is also helpful for physics problems • e.g. where s(t) is the position function and v(t) is the velocity function • Recall and know this!**Integrals**Example (question 2 on 2010/2011 final): = Tip: sometimes it may be easier to see an antiderivative if you use negative exponents and rewrite square roots as fractional exponents = =**Integrals**= = =**Integrals (Substitution)**Method of Substitution • Use when you see a function and its derivative in an integral • e.g. use substitution on because • If solving an indefinite integral, don’t forget to convert back to the original variable • i.e. change u back to x • If solving a definite integral, don’t forget to change the bounds of integration
