Day 51 – Reasoning from Graphs of Derivatives

We are wrapping up our graph sketching unit in my AP class, so today we did a lot of questions about determining the characteristics of a graph based on the graph of its derivative or its second derivative.

Class has been moving very fast, as dictated by the pace of the AP, and I can see a lot of kids getting a tiny bit frustrated.
