PLUS Session (Curve Sketching) Directions: For the next 30 minutes, work together in groups (3-4) on the following problems/questions. Afterwards, each group will present their solutions and answer questions relating to the correct answers. Everyone must work together! GOOD LUCK! Strategies Toward Curve Sketching: Step 1: Domain A. Determine the domain of f; identify endpoints; find any vertical asymptotes. Step 2: Intercepts A. Determine the x- and y-intercepts of the graph. Step 3: Symmetry/Periodicity A. Determine whether the function is even, odd, or periodic. Step 4: First Derivative A. Calculate the derivative and find the intervals for which the function is increasing and/or decreasing from the critical points. Step 5: Second Derivative A. Calculate the second derivative and find the intervals for which the function is concave up and/or concave down from the points of inflection.
