Test 3 Information

1. You will need to be able to use the first derivative test to find maximums/minimums (extrema).

2. You need to be able to use the second derivative test to find inflection points.

3. Be able to use the first derivative to find the intervals where the graph is increasing or decreasing.

4. Be able to use the second derivative to find the intervals where the graph is concave up/down.

5. Be able to combine logarithms that are added and/or subtracted into one logarithm.

6. Be able to solve an optimization problem.

7. Be able to graph an equation similar to     with intercepts, critical numbers, inflection points, etc.

8. Be able to use logarithms to solve equations with variables in the exponents.

9. Be able to simplify expressions using the exponent rules.

10. Be able to take derivatives of exponential and logarithmic functions. These could involve the product rule, quotient rule, and/or chain rule.

Test solutions can be found under "Test Information" on the Blackboard site.
