Some Math 135 review problems
The following problems are based heavily on problems written by Professor Stephen Green-
eld for his Math 135 class in spring 2005. His willingness to let these problems be used
this semester is gratefully acknowledged. The problems are grouped by topic.
Denition of derivative
1. Write the denition of derivative as a limit and use this denition to nd the derivative
of f(x)=x

x.
2. Write the denition of derivative as a limit and use this denition to nd the derivative
of f(x)=

.
3. Write the denition of derivative as a limit and use this denition to nd the derivative
of f(x)=
p
12x.

point at which f(x)isnot continuous;
and ND any point at which f(x)isnot
dierentiable. Some points may have
more than one label.
