There is not universal agreement on
derivative interval notation.
The theorem below shows this author’s
preference.
AP Exam will accept open or closed notation.

Critical Numbers Summary
(page 300)
D efinition of C ritical N um bers - T he num bers a w hich either f   x   0
or f is not differentiable are called critical num bers of f .
P oints w here f   x   0 are called stationary po ints and occur w here
f  x  has a m axim um , m inim um or an inflection point.
Inflection points m ark the places on the curve y  f  x  w here
the rate of change of y , f   x  , w ith respect to x changes form
increasing to decreasing, or visa versa.
Points w here f   x  D N E occur w here f  x  has
a cusp, corner point, vertical tangent line or point of discontinuity.

Critical Numbers and Relative
Extrema
(page 302)
Relative Extrema occur at critical numbers.
However, not every critical number has a relative extrema.
First Derivative Test
(page 302)
If f   x  changes from increasing to decreasin g at a
critical num ber, then there is relative m axim um .
If f   x  changes from decreasing to increasing at a
critical num ber, then there is relative m inim um .
If f   x  has the sam e sign on either side of
a critical num ber, then there is no extrem e value.
Second Derivative Test
(page 303)
If f   x  = 0 an d f   x  > 0 , th en f h as a m in im u m .
If f   x  = 0 an d f   x  < 0 , th en f h as a m ax im u m .
