Calculus 1 Review
Limit and Continuity
Applications of Derivatives
Exponential and Logarithmic Functions
Must know all rules of differentiation
Rate of change, related rates, optimization.
Increasing/Decreasing Function, local/absolute extreme values, concavity
Gathering info from the graph of f, or f’ or f’’.
Understand how integrals are defined, know all basic rules of integration, u-sub.
Intermediate Value Theorem, Extreme Value Theorem, Rolle’s Theorem, Mean Value Theorem
Fundamental Theorem of Calculus Definition of derivative:
Equation of tangent line at (a,f(a)) : yf f(x)a(') )
Rules of differentiation: uv '' u' v uv

Goal: To approximate a solution to f()0 (a root or a zero of the function
Start with a guess;0
If f 0 , then next guess is: f 0x
0 1 0 f x0)
In general:xn n f )n
f xn) Gathering information from the derivative function:
Example: Given the graph of f '(x.
Half life: kT ln(2)
Doubling time: Riemann Sums
Recall – left endpoint, right end point, midpoint, Trapezoid approaches, Upper
sum, Lower sum. You need to know how to put them in order depending on
whether the function increases/decreases.
Example: Given the definite integral, how do these sums compare with it?
Know the definition of a definite integral.
Note: For a positive function, definite integral gives the area under the curve.
If the formula of a function is not given, but the graph is given, you can use the
area under that function to find the definite integral. 6
Example: The graph given below belongs to f x). fxd) ?
