- 1. Section 2.1 The Derivative and Rates of Change V63.0121.027, Calculus I September 24, 2009 Announcements WebAssignments due Tuesday. Ofﬁce Hours today 3-4. See Section Calendar for up-to-date OH. . . . . . .
- 2. Regarding WebAssign We feel your pain . . . . . .
- 3. Explanations From the syllabus: Graders will be expecting you to express your ideas clearly, legibly, and completely, often requiring complete English sentences rather than merely just a long string of equations or unconnected mathematical expressions. This means you could lose points for unexplained answers. . . . . . .
- 4. Rubric Points Description of Work 3 Work is completely accurate and essentially perfect. Work is thoroughly developed, neat, and easy to read. Complete sentences are used. 2 Work is good, but incompletely developed, hard to read, unexplained, or jumbled. Answers which are not explained, even if correct, will generally receive 2 points. Work contains “right idea” but is ﬂawed. 1 Work is sketchy. There is some correct work, but most of work is incorrect. 0 Work minimal or non-existent. Solution is completely incorrect. . . . . . .

Example Find the slope of the line tangent to the curve y = x2 at the point (2, 4). Upshot If the curve is given by y = f(x), and the point on the curve is (a, f(a)), then the slope of the tangent line is given by f(x) − f(a) mtangent = lim x→a x−a . . . . . .
- 19. Velocity Problem Given the position function of a moving object, ﬁnd the velocity of the object at a certain instant in time.

Example Drop a ball off the roof of the Silver Center so that its height can be described by h(t) = 50 − 5t2 where t is seconds after dropping it and h is meters above the ground. How fast is it falling one second after we drop it? Solution The answer is (50 − 5t2 ) − 45 5 − 5t2 5(1 − t)(1 + t) v = lim = lim = lim t→1 t−1 t→1 t − 1 t→1 t−1 = (−5) lim(1 + t) = −5 · 2 = −10 t→1 . . . . . .

Is the ﬁsh population growing fastest in 1990, 2000, or 2010? (Estimate numerically)? Solution The estimated rates of growth are 0.000136, 0.75, and 0.000136. . . . . . .
- 42. Upshot The instantaneous population growth is given by P(t + ∆t) − P(t) lim ∆t→0 ∆t . . . . . .
- 43. Marginal costs Problem Given the production cost of a good, ﬁnd the marginal cost of production after having produced a certain quantity. . . . . . .
- 44. Marginal costs Problem Given the production cost of a good, ﬁnd the marginal cost of production after having produced a certain quantity. Example Suppose the cost of producing q tons of rice on our paddy in a year is C(q) = q3 − 12q2 + 60q We are currently producing 5 tons a year. Should we change that? . . . . . .

- 54. Comparisons q C(q) AC(q) = C(q)/q ∆C = C(q + 1) − C(q) 4 112 28 13 5 125 25 6 144 24 . . . . . .
- 55. Comparisons q C(q) AC(q) = C(q)/q ∆C = C(q + 1) − C(q) 4 112 28 13 5 125 25 19 6 144 24 . . . . . .

- 57. Marginal costs Problem Given the production cost of a good, ﬁnd the marginal cost of production after having produced a certain quantity. Example Suppose the cost of producing q tons of rice on our paddy in a year is C(q) = q3 − 12q2 + 60q We are currently producing 5 tons a year. Should we change that? Example If q = 5, then C = 125, ∆C = 19, while AC = 25. So we should produce more to lower average costs. . . . . . .
- 58. Upshot The incremental cost ∆C = C(q + 1) − C(q) is useful, but depends on units. . . . . . .
- 59. Upshot The incremental cost ∆C = C(q + 1) − C(q) is useful, but depends on units. The marginal cost after producing q given by C(q + ∆q) − C(q) MC = lim ∆q→0 ∆q is more useful since it’s unit-independent. . . . . . .
