Calculus Tutor: Curve Sketching Using Derivatives
Calculus essentially takes the fundamentals of algebra and extends them to include rates of change between quantities. The concepts are taught entirely through step-by-step example problems of increasing difficulty. It works by introducing each new concept in an easy to understand way and using example problems that are worked out step-by-step and line-by-line to completion. This lesson teaches students how to sketch curves using the rules of Calculus and the properties of derivatives. Numerous examples are worked and reinforce the concepts associated with using the sign of the derivative to predict the shape of the curve in question.
