Part of the Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics book series (UTM)

Abstract

Giver a curve, y = f(x), we shall use the derivative to give us information about the curve. For instance, we shall find the maximum and minimum of the graph, and regions where the curve is increasing or decreasing. We shall use the mean value theorem, which is basic in the theory of derivatives.
