# Chapter 6 Class 12 Application of Derivatives

Learn Chapter 6 Application of Derivatives (AOD) of Class 12 free with solutions of all NCERT Questions for Maths Boards

We learned Derivatives in the last chapter, in Chapter 5 Class 12. In this Chapter we will learn the applications of those derivatives.

The topics in the chapter include

• Finding rate of change
• Checking if a function is increasing or decreasing in an interval
• Checking if a function is increasing or decreasing in whole domain
• Finding if function is strictly increasing or decreasing in an interval
• Finding equation (and slope) of tangent and normal using derivatives
• Finding approximate value of numbers and functions
• Finding minimum and maximum values from graph of a function
• Definition of - Maxima, Minima, Absolute Maxima, Absolute Minima, Point of Inflexion
• Finding local maxima, local minima using first derivative test
• Finding local maxima, local minima using second derivative test
• Finding maximum and minimum values in closed interval (Finding Absolute Maxima and Absolute Minima)
• Statement questions of maxima and minima where we form equations and solve
