What is point of inflection of a function? Point of inflection of a function is defined as the point where the function changes the concavity, concave up corresponds to a positive second derivative and concave downward corresponds to a negative second derivative therefore at this point when the function changes from concave up to concave downward then the second derivative must be equal to zero at that point.

Calculus: Second Derivative Test

Students will find points of inflection and concavity of a function. Students will apply the Second Derivative Test to locate where concavity changes and the behavior of a function. You get a set of notes, SmartBoard lesson, daily content quiz, homework assignment and all solutions. No preparation time.
