Lecture 19 — Curve Sketching In the previous lecture, we saw how the derivatives of a function determine its basic shape on open in- tervals. We now want to determine how to assem- ble these shapes to form a nice sketch of the graph of an unfamiliar function. Here are some features to consider: (1) Domain (2) Intercepts (3) Asymptotes (horizontal/vertical) (4) Shapes (increasing/decreasing/concavity) (5) Local extrema, Inﬂection Points (6) Symmetry
