Now that you know how to take basic derivatives, it’s time to take it up a notch and learn how to actually apply differentiation to different problems. Remember how I said that AP Calculus is all about memorizing formulas? This still stands with these problems - the College Board will generally give you different variations of the same problem, so as long as you know how to solve these, you’ll be okay!Β πŸ™†β€β™‚οΈ

Graphical AnalysisΒ 

Graphical Analysis is a MAJOR AP TOPIC along with BC Integrals and Sequences and Series. You should expect at least one FRQ to be on Graphical Analysis along with several multiple-choice questions.Β πŸ“Š

Optimization

Now that we understand how derivatives can determine the maximum and minimum values on a graph, we can also apply this knowledge to word problems. πŸ“–
