Definition of a Derivative:

Mean Value Theorem:
If f is continuous on [a,b] and differentiable on (a,b), then there is at least on number c in (a,b) such that (f(b) - f(a)) / (b - a) = f'(c).
If f is continuous on a closed interval [a,b], then f(x) has both a maximum and minimum on [a,b].
To locate the points of inflection of y = f(x), find...
the points where f''(x) = 0 OR where f''(x) fails to exist. Then, test these points to make sure that f''(x) < 0 on one side and f''(x) > 0 on the other.
Starting with the given point (x₁,y₁),
Logarithm functions grow (slower/faster) than any power function (xⁿ).
Among power functions, those with higher powers grow (faster/slower) than those with lower powers.
