One of the best examples of where a function, its derivative and its second derivative are important is in problems involving displacement, velocity and acceleration.  It especially has importance in problems involving ballistic motion (sometimes called parabolic or projectile motion) or in situations that can be modeled with functions.  

Things you should be able to do after today:

  • Solve problems using first and second derivatives
