2. A function f (x) is called concave up if its average rate of change increases from left to right. 3. A function f (x) is called concave down if its average rate of change decreases from left to right. Describe the shape of the graph of a function f (x) that is concave up: Describe the shape of the graph of a function f (x) that is concave down:
Example. Read the following description of a function. Then, decide whether the function is increasing or decreasing. What does the scenario tell you about the concavity of the graph modeling it? When a new product is introduced, the number of people who use the product increases slowly at rst, and then the rate of increase is faster (as more and more people learn about the product). Eventually, the rate of increase slows down again (when most people who are interested in the product are already using it).

Denition. A function f is called periodic if its output values repeat at regular intervals. Graphically,
this means that if the graph of f is shifted horizontally by p units, the new graph is identical to the original. Given a periodic function f : 1. The period is the horizontal distance that it takes for the graph to complete one full cycle. That is, if p is the period, then f (t + p) = f (t). 2. The midline is the horizontal line midway between the functions maximum and minimum output values. 3. The amplitude is the vertical distance between the functions maximum value and the midline.
