The First Derivative Test

# The First Derivative Test

Unit 3: Formalizing Derivatives and Techniques for Differentiation

Lesson 17 of 21

Lesson 17 of 21

## Objective: SWBAT use the 1st derivative test to classify local extrema and sketch functions.

## Big Idea: We have used multiple derivative relationships to identify a function’s extrema graphically. Now, let’s develop an algebraic approach.

Subject(s):

Math, Derivatives, calculus ab, first derivative test, local extrema, relative extrema, calculus, AP Calculus, AP Calculus AB
