This quiz tests the work covered in Lecture 9 and corresponds to Section 2.3 of the
textbook Calculus: Single and Multivariable (Hughes-Hallett, Gleason, McCallum et
There is a web quiz at Wiley. It is the same quiz for each section in Chapter and you
should you attempt it now.

The Mathematics Learning Centre has a booklet on differentiation Introduction to Differential Calculus which covers all of the topics for the next few lectures. In particular, Chapters 2 and 3.1 of the booklet covers this topic.
The site http://www.math.uncc.edu/bjwichno/fall2004-math1242-006/Review˙Calc˙I/lec˙deriv.htm
covers some of the material in Section 2.1-2.3
There is an applet that lets you sketch the derivative of a given function at http://www.ltcconline.net/greenl/java/Other/DerivativeGraph/classes/DerivativeGraph.html After you have mastered the topic you might like to try the tests at http://www.univie.ac.at/future.media/moe/tests/diff1/defabl.html and http://www.univie.ac.at/future.media/moe/tests/diff1/poldiff.html and the puzzle at http://www.univie.ac.at/future.media/moe/tests/diff1/ablerkennen.html
Which of the following is the matching derivative function? Exactly one option must be correct)
Graph C has negative gradient to a bit more than 2 and then positive gradient. This matches graph F.
Similarly for the other 3 graphs.
