Applications of Differentiation II-Inflection, Theorems (MVT and Rolle’s) and Curve Sketching

 Topic Review on "Title": Rolle’s Theorem: If is continuous over and differentiable over and if then there is at least one number in such that The Mean Value Theorem: If is continuous over and differentiable over , and if then there is at least one number in such that Definition of the second derivative of a function: The second derivative is the derivative of the derivative of a function. First Derivative Test: If is a function continuous on and differentiable on then: Iffor all in then f is increasing on If for all x in then f is decreasing on If for all x in then f is constant on Second Derivative Test: If f is a function continuous on and differentiable on then: If for all x in then is concave up on If for all x in then is concave down on If for all x in then is changing concavity on Concavity: Curvature of a line or object, represented by the focus of the points on that region. Concave upward: Curvature such that the “bowl” of the curvature is directed upwards, or the focus is above the curve. Concave downward: Curvature such that the “bowl” of the curvature is directed downwards, or the focus is below the curve.
