Math 226 Curve Sketching Workshop

This interactive workshop is designed for students currently enrolled in Math 226 who would like more exposure on understanding the relationships between first derivatives, second derivatives, and curve sketching.

This workshop is designed to help students develop skills for:

  • Understanding the relationship between extrema, critical points, and the first derivative
  • Understanding the relationship between concavity, inflection points, and the second derivative
  • Classifying extrema as minima or maxima
  • Identifying vertical and horizontal asymptotes of functions

This workshop contains interactive elements that give the students a chance to apply their prior knowledge about curve sketching as well as practice the materials that are covered in the workshop.

This workshop will take place on Tuesday, August 1st, from 12:30 PM - 2:00 PM in HSS 347. Students can sign up for the workshop until August 1st at 12:00 PM with their SFSU ID in CARP’s Administrative Office, located in HSS 346.
