Okay, this will be the first post of the new school year. You have an additional assignment over the material covered today in class. The assignment is as follows:
Page 132: 23-29, 31
Remember, as we discussed today, the derivative is equal to the instantaneous rate of a function, which is equal to the slope of the tangent line at a point. So f'(a), the derivative of a function at x=a, can also be seen as the slope of the line tangent to the function at x=a. Use this fact to help you answer some of the problems in the book. This mini assignment is due tomorrow, Tuesday, October 1. If you have any questions, you may post them or bring them to me in the morning.
