 Wolfram Alpha engine  A computation engine that can do many calculations / graphs for you as well as look up reliable information about almost anything.
 How do you analyze and interpret the Cartesian graph of a function in terms of its second derivative?
 What is an inflection point of a graph?
 What are acceleration and deceleration of a function?
 How can you tell from the second derivative of a function where the function is accelerating and decelerating?
 What does the second derivative of a function tell you?
 How can you find the location of an inflection point of a function from its second derivative?
 How can you take the numerical derivative of a function on a TI graphing calculator?
 How can you graph a function and its derivative on a TI graphing calculator?
This lesson shows you the second derivative of a function and takes some information from this second derivative to learn something about the original function. This is a great tutorial on learning concepts from the second derivative of a function. Two different functions and their derivatives and second derivatives are examined.
