Ch 49: Differential Calculus & Functions

As you prepare for a test or work through a homework assignment, check out the lessons covering functions and differential calculus in this informative chapter. Work through the text and video lessons and then take the multiple-choice quizzes to see how well you understand the material.

Differential Calculus & Functions - Chapter Summary

Our instructors present the operations associated with real-valued algebraic functions and discuss composite functions in these easy-to-follow lessons. Additional topics include L'Hopital's Rule, examples of even and odd functions and what inverse functions entail.

You'll also learn how to use the chain rule with complex functions and how to find the derivatives of implicit functions. A lesson on the mean value theorem is included. Once you review this chapter, you should be ready to do the following:

• Differentiate between the behavior of logarithmic and exponential functions
• Explain the limits of functions
• Define function continuity
• Use a calculation to find the derivative of trigonometric functions
• Identify the traits of functions
• Find maximum and minimum values using differentiation
• Detail Rolle's Theorem

Created by a professional instructor, our lessons are short and easy to understand. Each text or video lesson is accompanied by a multiple-choice quiz so you can test your comprehension and identify areas that need more study. If you have questions, contact one of our instructors for help. These tools are accessible on any computer, mobile phone or tablet at any time.
