Module 9 - The Relationship between a Function and Its First and Second Derivative Introduction | Lesson 1 | Lesson 2 | Self-Test Introduction In previous modules you used the graph of a function to investigate its derivative. In this module you will use the derivative to find properties of the original function. You will also investigate what the second derivative says about a function. Lesson Index: 9.1 - What the First Derivative Says About the Function 9.2 - What the Second Derivative Says About the Function After completing this module, you should be able to do the following: Use the Derivative and Tangent features in the Graph Math menu Describe what the first derivative says about a function Use the tanimate program to illustrate the relationships between a function and its first and second derivatives Use the Inflection feature in the Graph Math menu Use the Derivative key to find second derivatives Describe what the second derivative says about a function Next > ©Copyright 2007 All rights reserved. | Trademarks | Privacy Policy | Link Policy
