On Monday we proved that if a function is differentiable then it is continuous (today I stated that a rough word explaining differentiable is smooth). We showed that a continuous function need not be differentiable by showing the counterexample f(x)=|x|. We presented and proved the sum, scalar, product and quotient rules of differentiation. The proof of the quotient rule is on this page. We did the derivative of x^n and x^{-n} for n\geq 1. As a corollary we showed that polynomials are differentiable everywhere. Finally we wrote down the Chain Rule.
In the tutorial nobody asked any questions, so I threw the exercises up on the projector and allowed ye work away. Ye put up your hand if ye wanted assistance. In the end I did questions 1 & 2 from http://euclid.ucc.ie/pages/staff/wills/teaching/ms2001/exercise3.pdf.
On Wednesday we wrote down the Chain rule again, stated the proof was up here and gave a very dodgy explanation of why we must multiply by the derivative of the ‘inside’ function. We stated and proved the derivatives of \sin x, \cos x, \tan x, e^x and \log x (the last two proved non-rigorously). Finally we wrote down Rolle’s Theorem.
