Unformatted text preview: Critical points Inflection points Intervals where f is increasing, decreasing, and concave up and concave down. Find local minima and maxima by applying the 1 st or 2 nd Derivative Tests to critical points. Find minimum and maximum on a closed interval . o Given the graph of the first derivative f’ , be able to use this graph to find information about the original function f : Critical points and inflection points of f The intervals where f is increasing or decreasing, and concave up or concave down. o Asymptotic behavior (i.e. limits at infinity) of polynomials and rational functions. o Be able to solve the optimization problems in WeBWork 12. o L’Hôpital’s Rule – be able to use it to find appropriate limits (WeBWork 12)....
