Graphing polynomials like x^2 or x^3 is explained by a Seattle Academy student on YouTube videos.

Algorithm: Using f(x), find intercepts and end behavior. Then, f'(x) will determine increasing and decreasing intervals as well as local minimums and maximums.

Last, f"(x) will help with intervals of concavity.

- The video lessons will go over these ideas.
- End behavior and intercepts...
- First derivative to use critical points to find intervals...
- Second derivative to find concavity....
- Purple Math - A very popular math site with good explanations. 'End behavior' help is here.
- Virtual Math Lab - This sites explains graphs and gives several examples.
- Kuta Software - A great site filled with many example problems and solutions.
- Review the videos and notes below with the hopes they make sense.
- Do the practice problem on the bottom of this page and then check the solution.
