### Thursday's Test Topics

Here’s a list of topics that will be covered on this Thursday’s 3.6-7, 5.4-5,12.3 Test

Derivatives of Natural Logarithmic functions

Derivatives of Trigonometric functions

Using Product, Quotient and Chain Rules to determine derivatives (and tangent lines) of any combinations of the above functions

Implicit Differentiation (also using any of the above derivatives)

Related Rates

Differentials (the difference between dy and delta-y)

Linear approximation techniques to estimate values

That’s it! I’ll be in early on Thursday, and available after school today…
