# Local Linearization, 1st and 2nd Derivative Tests, and Computing Derivatives

Unit 9: Full Course Review via Motion

Lesson 3 of 17

Lesson 3 of 17

## Objective: SWBAT estimate points on a function using local linearity; SWBAT use the first and second derivative tests to identify local extrema; SWBAT differentiate functions using power, product, quotient and chain rules.

## Big Idea: We’ve justified interest in derivatives conceptually; we now review computing derivatives algebraically and some mathematical applications.

Subject(s):

Math, local linear approximation, Precalculus and Calculus, Derivatives, AP Calculus AB, AP Calculus, local linearization, 1st derivative test, first derivative test, 2nd derivative test, second derivative test
