General Notes to be Aware of About Derivatives: I. A tangent line to a function at a point is the line that best approximates the function at that point better than any other line. II. The slope of the function at a given point is the slope of the tangent line to the function at that point. The derivative of f at x = a is the slope, m, of the function f at the point x = a (if m exists), denoted by f 0 (a) = m. All other notations: III. The function f(x) is differentiable at a point x0 if f 0 (x0) exists. If a function is differentiable at all points in its domain (i.e. f 0 (x) is defined for all x in the domain), then we consider f 0 (x) as a function and call it the derivative of f(x). IV. Theorem (The Extre
