- 3. Introduction to Differential Calculus Do not go from speed x to zero instantaneously. Up to this moment, your experience of speed and the relationship with distance and time has been restricted to questions such as those represented by this travel graph. However, there are two problems: 1. We can only find the AVERAGE speed between 2 time points, we cannot find the actual speed when t = a given time. 2. The graph doesn’t realistically depict changes in speed
- 4. Therefore we will look at methods for finding the instantaneous Speed or rate of change for a given graph or function. This is known as Differential Calculus and was developed by Sir Isaac Newton and others and is used in many areas of maths. “If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.” 50 40 Sir Isaac Newton(1642-1727) 30 20 10 0 1 2 3
- 5. To Speed or Not To Speed? A couple of motorists have been photographed by a speed camera and charged with speeding. The speed limit is under 30m/s in the area they were driving. They claim they were under the speed limit. Use the table below to determine if they broke the law or not. The camera flashed at 3 seconds. Time 0s 1s 2s 3s 4s Distance 0m 5m 20m 45m 80m
- 6. Finding The Average Speed. Time 0s 1s 2s 3s 4s Distance 0m 5m 20m 45m 80m The formula for finding the speed is: Distance Speed Time Calculate the average speed between 0 and 3 seconds. 45 0 So far so Speed = 15m/s good for our 30 dastardly duo.
- 7. So far we have worked out the average speed between 0 and 3 seconds as shown below: f=at2 Now repeat for 1 to 3 seconds. 50 And 2 to 3 seconds 40 45m 30 20 10 0 1 2 3 3s
- 8. The Instantaneous Speed. We use these results to complete the table below: Time Interval 0-3 s 1-3 s 2-3 s Average Speed 25m/s 15m/s 20m/s It is clear that the closer the times are taken together the more accurately the speed of the car can be measured at 3 seconds. How can we get more accurate readings ? Use d = 5t 2 you snickering fools !!
- 9. Using the formula d = 5 t 2 we find the table below: Time 2.6s 2.7s 2.8s 2.9s 3.0s Distance. 33.8m 36.45m 42.04m 45m 39.2m Time 2.6-3.0 2.7-3.0 2.8-3.0 2.9-3.0 Interval Average 28.5m/s 29m/s 29.6m/s 28m/s Speed. Guilty or not guilty ? The verdict is yours !!!
- 10. The Tangent To The Curve. To calculate the average speed we have been calculating the gradients of lines as shown below: 50 40 30 20 10 0 1 2 3
- 11. To get the instantaneous speed of the car at three seconds we require to calculate the gradient of the line which is tangential to the curve at t = 3seconds.That is to say the line contacts the curve at almost a single point at t= 3. The line is shown below: The tangent to the curve 50 at t = 3 . 40 30 20 10 0 1 2 3
- 12. The Final Verdict. To calculate the value of the gradient of the tangent you require to consider a time as close to 3 seconds as possible. You might consider t= 3 and t= 2.99s or t= 3 and t=2.999s and so on… Investigate and find out if the car travelled at 30m/s. Learn your calculus numb skulls or you’ll never catch us !!
- 14. Required skills Before we start ………. You will need to remember work with Indices, as well as what you have learned about Straight Lines from Unit 1.1. Lets recall the rules on indices …..
- 15. Rules of indices Rule Examples 1 a0 = 1 12.3140 = 1 1 1 3 a= x= 5 -m -5 nn 3 x am 2 m 6 = x x 3 2 3 am a n n y 55 y6 3 1 = 6a a 2a × 3a 3/2 1/2 2 2 am × an = am+n 2 6a = x2 x -3= x 23 a a =a m n m-n x5 = q2 ﾴ q2 ﾴ q2 (q ) = 23 (am)n = amn 6 =q
- 16. What is Differentiation? Differentiation is the process of deriving f ′(x) from f(x). We will look at this process in a second. f ′ (x) is called the derived function or derivative of f(x). The derived function represents: • the rate of change of the function • the gradient of the tangent to the graph of the function.
- 17. Tangents toofcurves or slope of a The derivative function is a measure the gradient function at any given point. This requires us to consider the gradient of a line. We can do this if we think about how we measure the gradient from Unit 1.1 B(x2,y2) The gradient of AB = mAB y2 – y1 Change in y Change in x A(x1,y1) x2 – x1 y2 y1 C x 2 x1 y2 y1 m , Gradient Formula x 2 x1
- 18. Tangents to curves We will look at a function and think about the gradient of the function at any given point. The function itself is not important, the process we go through to get the gradient is. We want to find the gradient of a curve. A is the point (x, f(x)) and B is a point on the function a short distance h from A. This gives B the coordinates (x+h, f(x+h)) The line AB is shown on the diagram. We want to find the gradient of the curve at A. If we find the gradient of the line AB and move B towards A we should get the gradient at A.
- 19. Gradient of a function y = f(x) y A (( x h), f ( x h)) f ( x h) ( x h) y2 y1 f ( x h) M AB ( x h) x2 x1 (( x), f ( x)) f ( x h) ( x) B f ( x) ( x h) x ( x ( x h) f x h f ( x) hf)( x) f ( x) ( x) x f ( x) f ( x) f ( x) f ( x h) f ( x ) ( x) ( x h) f ( x h) f ( x ) ( x) M AB ( x h) ( x) ( x) ( x) ( x) ( x) ( x) ( x) ( x)
- 20. h What happens if we make smaller? f ( x h) f ( x ) M AB y = f(x) ( x h) x y A (( x h), f ( x h)) When x h x Then gradient of (( x), f ( x)) AB is the B gradient of the tangent at B x x xhxhxhxhxhhh h xhxhx hx xhh xx hx x xh x
- 21. Shrinking the tangent line is the same as letting h get very small y = f(x) y The gradient doesn't change as the line gets smaller and so the gradient at B must be the B same as the gradient of the line x
- 22. What are we saying? We know f ( x h) f ( x ) M AB ( x h) x But f ( x h) f ( x ) M lim B h 0 ( x h) x This is the basic, first principle definition of the derived function. Usually written f / ( x )
- 23. Putting it together…. f ( x) f ( x h) f ﾢ x) lim ( Differentiate the function f(x) = x2 h hﾮ 0 from first principles. ( x h) 2 x 2 f ﾢ x) lim ( h hﾮ 0 The derivative is the same as the gradient of the tangent to the curve so we can go straight to the gradient formula we x 2 2 xh h 2 x 2 f ﾢ x) lim saw in the previous slides.

- 25. Rules for differentiation There are four rules for differentiating – remember these and you can differentiate anything … Rule Examples f(x) = xn f ′(x) = nxn-1 f(x) = x6 f ′ (x) = 6 x 6-1 = 6 x 5 f(x)= 4x2 f ′ (x) = 4 x 2 x 2-1 f ′ (x) = cnx f(x) = cx n n-1 = 8 x 1 or 8 x f(x) = c f ′ (x) = 0 f(x) = 65 f ′ (x) = 0 f(x) = g(x) + h(x) f(x)= x6 + 4x2 + 65 f ′ (x) = 6 x 5 + 8x f ′ (x) = g′ (x) + h′ (x)

- 43. Gottfried Wilhelm Leibnitz (1646 - 1716) On the accession in 1714 of his master, George I., to the throne of England, Leibnitz was thrown aside as a useless tool; he was forbidden to come to England; and the last two years of his life were spent in neglect and dishonour. He was overfond of money and personal distinctions; was unscrupulous, as perhaps might be expected of a professional diplomatist of that time; but all who once came under the charm of his personal presence remained sincerely attached to him. He also held eminent positions in diplomacy, philosophy and literature. The last years of his life - from 1709 to 1716 - were embittered by the long controversy with John Keill, Newton, and others, as to whether he had discovered the differential calculus independently of Newton's previous investigations, or whether he had derived the fundamental idea from Newton, and merely invented another notation for it. The controversy occupies a place in the scientific history of the early years of the eighteenth century quite disproportionate to its true importance, but it materially affected the history of mathematics in western Europe . From `A Short Account of the History of Mathematics' (4th edition, 1908) by W. W. Rouse Ball.

- 45. Leibniz Notation Liebniz Notation is an alternative way of expressing derivatives to f'(x) , g'(x) , etc. Regardless of the notation, the meaning of the result is the same: • the rate of change of the function • the gradient of the tangent at a given point If y is expressed in terms of x then the derivative is written as /dx . dy “dee y by dee x” so /dx = 6x - 7 . dy eg y = 3x - 7x 2 If function is given as y=, or x=, t= etc. we use Leibniz notation.

- 51. The Tangent to the Graph y = mx + c y = f(x) A (a,b) tangent So far we have differentiated functions, stating that the derived function provides us with the gradient of the tangent to the graph. We have seen that whilst the derived function is the same throughout the curve the actual gradient is dependant on the x-coordinate.
- 52. The Tangent to the Graph y = mx + c y = f(x) A (a,b) tangent Now we want to find the equation of the tangent. The tangent is a straight line. We know from previous work on the straight line that y y1 m( x x1 ) . How can we find m?
- 53. The Tangent to the Graph y = mx + c y = f(x) A (a,b) tangent At any point gradient of curve = gradient of tangent As the gradient of a straight line is the same throughout the line if we can find the gradient of the curve at A this is the gradient we can use for the equation of the tangent. So m f (a ) '

- 127. Optimisation : Maxima & 12. Minima
- 128. Problem Solving Differentiation can be used to solve problems which require maximum or minimum values. Problems typically cover topics such as areas, volumes and rates of change. They often involve having to establish a suitable formula in one variable and then differentiating to find a maximum or minimum value. This is known as Optimisation. It is important to check the validity of any solutions as often an answer is either nonexistent (e.g. a negative length or time) or outside an acceptable interval.
- 129. Optimisation Optimisation is the term we use to describe a simple process of finding a maximum or minimum value for a given situation. Normally we would have to graph functions and then use our graph to establish a maximum or minimum. As we have learned previously, differentiation allows us to quickly find the required value and is the expected manner of solving problems like this in Higher mathematics. Drawing graphs would not be an acceptable solution.
- 130. Optimisation Problems posed will often involve more than one variable. The process of differentiation requires that we rewrite or re- arrange formulae so that there is only one variable – typically x. Questions are therefore multi-part where the first part would involve establishing a formula in x from a given situation, part 2 would involve the differentiation and validation of an acceptable answer, with part 3 the solution to the problem set. You would do well to note that although the first part is important, you can normally expect to complete the rest of the question even when you cannot justify a formula in part 1.
- 131. Copy the following: Optimization : Maxima and Minima •Differentiation is most commonly used to solve problems by providing a “best fit” solution. •Maximum and minimum values can be obtained from the Stationary Points and their nature. •In exams you may be asked to “prove” a particular formula is valid. Even if you cannot prove this USE THIS FORMULA TO ANSWER THE REST OF THE QUESTION.
