Introduction The need for a general method for finding maxima and minima of functions was one of the main driving {orces of the development of Calculus. Apparently, many textbooks authors have inferred from this that maximization and minimization cannot be treated at all at the precalculus level. Very few precalculus textbooks present such problems, even in an unsystematic manner. This is a pity; the pursuit ofthis goal should start well befare any calculus course.
