    Concepts of graphing functions modules

    Overview

    After completing this section, students should be able to do the following.

    • Understand what information the derivative gives concerning when a function is increasing or decreasing.
    • Understand what information the second derivative gives concerning concavity of the graph of a function.
    • Interpret limits as giving information about functions.
    • Determine how the graph of a function looks based on an analytic description of the function.

    What's the graph look like?
