Lecture Section Objectives Assignment 16 3.3 Concavity and The Second-derivative Test 3.3: 1, 7, 9-17 odd, 23-33 odd, 47, 65 Understanding Goals: 1. Understand the definition of concavity and points of inflection. 2. Understand how to determine the intervals on which the graphs of functions are concave upward or downward. 3. Understand how to find the points of inflection of the graphs of the function and how to use the second-derivative test to find the relative extrema of functions. 4. Understand the concept of diminishing returns in economics and know how to find it in an input-output model. 1
