valued function of two variables f consists of a set A of ordered pairs of real numbers x y called the domain of the function and a rule that associates with each ordered pair in the domain of f one and only one real numb r denoted by zfxv to F x z D orrvl You will need to learn several skills using functions of several variables 1 Evaluating a function of several variables at a given point

Sketching One of our objectives in this part of the course is to be able to graph functions In this lesson we ll add to some tools we already have to be able to sketch an accurate graph of each function From prerequisite material we can nd the domain y intercept and end behavior of the graph of a function and from the last two sections we can learn much about a function by analyzing the first and second derivatives We also know how to find the zeros of some functions We ll expand that group of function before we continue to curve sketching The Rational Zeros of a Polynomial Function The rational zeros of a function are the zeros of the function that can be written as a fraction such 1 as 2 or Somet1mes we can find the ratlonal zeros of a functlon by factor1ng Example 1 Find the rational zeros fx x3 16x Example 2 Find the rational zeros fx x4 11x2 18 M1314 Lesson 12 2 Note that zeros that are square roots are NOT rational roots Imaginary solutions to the equation fx 0 such as i 3139 are NOT rational roots Sometimes we won t be able to factor the function Then we ll need another method We ll use a theorem called the Rational Zeros Theorem First we ll nd all of the possible rational zeros of a given function using the Rational Zeros Theorem Then we can use a calculator or synthetic diVision to determine which 7 if any 7 of the possible rational zeros are actually zeros of the function Here s the theorem Rational Zeros Theorem Suppose fx anxquot a x 1 a0 where an 72 0 and a0 72 0 and all ofthe coefficients of the polynomial are integers If x E is a rational zero of the function where p and q have no common factors then p is a q factor of the constant term a0 and q is a factor of the leading coefficient an Example 3 Find the possible rational zeros of fx 2x3 3x2

graphing functions You will need to be able to use the following guide to sketch the graphs of functions A Guide to Curve Sketching 1 Determine the domain off 2 Find the rational x intercepts and y intercept of the inction If there are no rational x intercepts sa so 3 Determine the end behavior of the function 4 For an exponential inction determine any horizontal asymptotes 5 Determine where the

guide to curve sketching to sketch the graph of a polynomial or exponential Sketch a graph of a function given all of the information from the guide to curve sketching Answer questions about the graph of a function given the graph of the function M1314 Lesson 1 1 Math 1314 Lesson 1 Limits What is calculus The body of mathematics that we call calculus resulted from the investigation of two basic questions by mathematicians in the 18th century 1 How can we find the line tangent to a curve at a given point on the curve 6 1305 vbva Slope b 2 nesatiuq Slope arber in L3 no slope line 7 W I 3 e fh 1 M1314 Lesson 1 2 2 How can we find the area of a region bounded by an arbitrary curve The investigation of each of these questions relies on the process of finding a limit so we39ll start by informally defining a limit and follow that by learning techniques for finding limits Limits Finding a limit amounts to answering the following question What is happening to the ywalue of a function as the x value approaches a specific target number If the ywalue is approaching a specific number then we can state the limit of the function as x gets close to the target number Rx l 1 O L x 2 1 225

xvalue every reaches the target number It might or it might not Example 2 hm 390 0 XAI Z quotma 3872 X o 1 m 365 0 X 7 z 300 M1314 Lesson 1 When can a limit fail to exist We will look at two cases where a limit fails to exist note there are more but some are beyond the scope of this course Case 1 The yvalue approaches one number from numbers smaller than the target number and it approaches a second number from numbers larger than the target number PgtO 39 5 l l l q i linoFIDO does no C t i m emb DME X7 Case 2 At the target number for the xvalue the graph of the function has a vertical

De nition We say that a function fhas limit L as xapproaches the target number a written hm 5 gt0 Z X quot3 q if the value x can be made as close to the number L as we please by taking xsufficiently close to but not equal to a lim fx L Note that L is a single real number Evaluating Limits There are several methods for evaluating limits We will discuss these three 1 substituting 2 factoring and reducing 3 nding limits at in nity To use the first two of these methods we will need to apply several properties of limits M1314 Lesson 1 Properties of limits Suppose lim fx L and lim gx M Then x gta

written lim fx L if x can be made X oo arbitrarily close to L by taking x to be negative and suf ciently large in absolute value We can also find a limit at in nity by looking at the graph of a

infinity is to divide every term in the numerator and the denominator of the rational expression by xquot where n is the highest power of x present in the denominator of the expression Then we can

to just learn some rules for finding limits at infinity The highest power of the variable in a polynomial is called the degree of the polynomial We can compare the degree of the numerator with the degree of the denominator and come up with some generalizations o If the degree of the numerator is smaller than the degree of the denominator then limm 0 3L l 0 H 90 x 7 x3 o If the degree of the

De nition of the Derivative We now address the rst of the two questions of calculus the tangent line question We are interested in nding the slope of the tangent line at a speci c point W I I We could attempt to answer this question by graphing the function and its tangent line at the point of interest However with many functions we d get an approximation at best We need a way to nd the slope of the tangent line analytically for every problem that will be exact every time We can draw a secant line across the curve then take the coordinates of the two points on the curve P and Q and use the slope formula to approximate the slope of the tangent line Consider this function lesson 3 M1314 ow suppose we move point Q closer to point P When we do this we ll get a better approximation of the slope of the tangent 1ne Suppose we move point Q even closer to point P We get an even better approximation We are letting the distance betweenP and Q get smaller and smaller What does this sound like M1314 lesson 3 3 Now let s give these two points names We ll express them as ordered pairs Am Now we ll apply the slope formula to these two points This expression is called a difference quotient The last thing that we want to do is to let the distance betweenP and Q get arbitrarily small so we ll take a limit This gives us the definition of the slope of the tangent line Definition The slope of the tangent line to the graph of fat the point Px f x is given by hm fx hgt7 fx hgt0 1 provided the limit exists The difference quotient gives us the average rate of change We find the instantaneous rate of change when we take the limit of the difference quotient The derivative of f with respect to x is the function f 39 read fprime defined by f39x The domain of f39x is the set of all x for which the limit exists M1314 lesson 3 4 We can use the derivative of a function to solve many types of problems Once we have completed our study of the derivative we will be able to solve problems such as
