Math 1314 Day 5 Curve Sketching You will need to be able to use the following guide to sketch the graphs of functions. A Guide to Curve Sketching 1. Determine the domain of f. 2. Find the rational x intercept(s) and y intercept of the function. If there are no rational x intercepts, say so. Note, occasionally, approximations of the zeros of the function may be given to you. 3. Determine the end behavior of the function. 4. Determine where the function is increasing and where it is decreasing. 5. Find the x and y coordinates of any relative extrema. 6. Determine where the function is concave upward and where it is concave downward. 7. Find the x and y coordinates of any points of inflection. 8. If necessary, plot a few additional points to determine the shape of the graph. 9. Sketch the function.
