Tutorial

Prerequisites

Before starting this packet, you should have learned a bit about the following topics.

Local Minima and Local Maxima

In this video, we quickly investigate the properties of local minima and maxima, and look into how they relate to derivatives.

The Theorem

In this video we state the mean value theorem before proving using our knowledge of derivatives and local extrema.
