 APC.5
 Investigate derivatives presented in graphic, numerical, and analytic contexts and the relationship between continuity and differentiability.
 The derivative will be defined as the limit of the difference quotient and interpreted as an instantaneous rate of change.
 APC.6
 The student will investigate the derivative at a point on a curve.
 Includes:
 finding the slope of a curve at a point, including points at which the tangent is vertical and points at which there are no tangents
 using local linear approximation to find the slope of a tangent line to a curve at the point
 defining instantaneous rate of change as the limit of average rate of change
 approximating rate of change from graphs and tables of values.
 APC.7
 Analyze the derivative of a function as a function in itself.
 Includes:
 comparing corresponding characteristics of the graphs of f, f', and f''
 defining the relationship between the increasing and decreasing behavior of f and the sign of f'
 translating verbal descriptions into equations involving derivatives and vice versa
 defining the relationship between the concavity of f and the sign of f "
 APC.9
 Apply formulas to find derivatives.
 Includes:
 derivatives of algebraic and trigonometric functions
 derivations of sums, products, quotients, inverses, and composites (chain rule) of elementary functions
 derivatives of implicitly defined functions
 higher order derivatives of algebraic and trigonometric functions
