Developing the Graph of a Function

3. Set up a number line with the critical points on it

Developing the Graph of a Function 3. Set up a number line with the critical points on it 4. Now test values in each interval in the derivative and use the conditions above

Developing the Graph of a Function 3. Set up a number line with the critical points on it 4. Now test values in each interval in the derivative and use the conditions above - Positive so increasing, draw an arrow going up on a slant

Developing the Graph of a Function 3. Set up a number line with the critical points on it 4. Now test values in each interval in the derivative and use the conditions above - Negative so decreasing, draw an arrow going down on a slant

Developing the Graph of a Function

** rational functions like this will not only have critical points we have to find, but could have vertical asymptotes included in the intervals

Developing the Graph of a Function

3. Asymptotes occur where the denominator = 0
