Remember that the derivative of a function tells us the slope of the tangent line for all points on the graph of a function. This means that a graph of the derivative can be developed, as a function has an infinite number of points, and each point has its own tangent line.  Today you will see how the graph of the derivative is related to the graph of the function.

Things you need to know

  • how to create a rough sketch of the derivative of a function based on the funcion
  • why you can't create a sketch of a function from its derivative without a coordinate
