Differentiation
This is used to find the gradient of a curve at different points. It also helps us find the equation of a
tangent or a normal to a curve, stationary points on a curve, minimum and maximum points and tells
us whether a function is increasing or decreasing

Times…

### Page 2

Equation of a normal to the curve

The normal to curve is always at a right angle to
the tangent
This means that it's perpendicular to the tangent
This means that the product of the gradients is -1

m1 x m2 = -1
To find the equation of a normal…

and then sub in your x coordinate into your second derivative dx2

Increasing and decreasing functions

If the gradient of a function is POSITIVE then it is INCREASING

If the gradient of a function is NEGATIVE then it is DECREASING

1. Differentiate and sub in your x value
2. Write…
