Unformatted text preview: Math 165 Special Assignment #3 Lowman Spring 2010 Due on Thursday in discussion when you take your quiz. General Instructions: Graph each of the given functions on a seperate page by using the ten step method used in lectures. 1. Ask: What do you already know in general about f ( x ) ? 2. Find all y-intercepts (functions have at most one) 3. Find all x-intercepts. Note, in some cases these are too hard to find using algebra. In this case, it might be better to perform all other steps first to get a good sense where the x-intercepts are and then use graphical or trial and error methods with your calculator. 4. Find all critical numbers, CNs or x c s . These occur were f ( x ) is zero of undefined. 5. Find all critical points, CPs. These will occur at critical numbers where the function is defined. 6. Use the second derivative test to determine what kind of critical points. As stated in the definition of the second derivative test: If the second derivative test fails then use the first derivative test.derivative test....
