12 Max-min word problems 1. Evaluate the function at the endpoints and at all critical points. 2. The largest value will be the absolute maximum and the smallest value will be the absolute minimum. 3. Remember, continuous functions have both an absolute maximum and an absolute minimum on a

closed interval.

13 Motion along a line Go from

x(t) â†’ v(t) â†’ a(t)

by dierentiating.

14 Related Rates 1. Find an equation which relates the quantity with the unknown rate of change to quantitie(s) whose rate(s) of change are known. 2. Dierentiate both sides of the equation implicitly with respect to time. 3. Solve for the derivative that represents the unknown rate of change. 4.

Then

evaluate this derivative at the conditions of the problem.
