    This lesson is almost the opposite of the previous lesson. This time, you will learn how to determine whether the graph of a derivative function is increasing or decreasing during different intervals. This concept is explained very well. A logistic function is shown at the end of this lesson to drive home the idea of how the inflection point relates to the graph of the derivative function.
