Differential Calculus


Students should be able to

  • determine rational function zeros and solve basic inequalities, analyse the limiting value of functions, continuity and the derivative

  • find the derivatives of basic functions

  • apply the derivative to polynomial functions to determine maximum and minimum values

  • determine the largest and smallest values for rational functions

  • use technological aids to analyse limiting values, continuity and the derivative and to solve rational equations and the use of derivative of polynomial and rational functions in solving practical problems.
