Many questions on the AP Calculus BC exam involve working with graphs of a function and its derivatives. In this chapter, you will learn how to use derivatives both algebraically and graphically to determine the behavior of a function. Applications of Rolle's Theorem, the Mean Value Theorem, and the Extreme Value Theorem are shown. You will also learn to sketch the graphs of parametric and polar equations.
