Find deeper meaning in graphs. Pupils use the knowledge gained from the previous sections in the unit to sketch graphs of a function's derivative. Learners also see how to sketch a graph of a function given the graph of its derivatives. In doing so, scholars interpret intercepts and critical points of each graph to gain insight of the other.
