DIFFERENTIAL CALCULUSHome Limits Gradient First principles Tangents and Normals Graph sketching Derivatives of functions Composite functions Second derivatives Stationary pointsIntroduction The two-point formula Gradients of secants The concept of gradient is so important for a thorough understanding of differential calculus. The graphs of some linear functions are steep with a positive slope > The graphs of some linear functions are less steep > … and others have negative slopes > Gradient is a measure of this steepness or slope. It is defined as the ratio of the rise to the run. The gradient of the green function is 2. Check the gradient of the red function is 1/3 And the blue line has a gradient of-1 2

DIFFERENTIAL CALCULUSHome Limits Gradient First principles Tangents and Normals Graph sketching Derivatives of functions Composite functions Second derivatives Stationary pointsIntroduction Case study An algebraic approach Limiting process The gradient of the graph of a linear function is easy to find; we can use the two- point formula as shown in the previous section. But how can we find the gradient at different points on a non-linear function, such as the one shown here? Clearly the parabola gets steeper as the x-values increase… … but how can we measure the actual gradient at any particular point on the curve? Gradient of the function at the point ( 3, 9) > The gradient at a point P on the DEFINITION curve is defined as the gradient of the tangent to the curve at Gradient of the function at the point ( 2, 4) that point. 5
