In the past, one of the important uses of derivatives was as an aid in curve sketching. Even though we usually use a calculator or computer to draw complicated graphs, it is still important to understand the relationships between derivatives and graphs.
y is positive Curve is rising. y is negative Curve is falling. y is zero Possible local maximum or minimum. Second derivative: y ′′ is positive Curve is concave up. y
