Calculus 1

Learn the Maximum and Minimum Values of a Function by examining Local Extrema and Relative Extrema. This necessary component of Calculus will challenge your proficiency on levels tanging from Global Extrama to When Fermat's Theorem Does Not Work. Critical analysis of Fermat's Theorem will be applied and examined in Proof of Fermat's Theorem. Visual representation of this concept will be demonstrated in Graphing Relative Extrema and Graphing Extrema. Further applying the visual sense of extrema is Visualizing Extrema and Visualizing Critical Numbers. Exlore the wide range of applications and graphing abilities found in Maximum and Minimum Values of a Function.
