Mapped to AP College Board # FUN-4, FUN-4.A, FUN-4.A.1

A function’s derivative can be used to understand some behaviors of the function. Justify conclusions about the behavior of a function based on the behavior of its derivatives. The first derivative of a function can provide information about the function and its graph, including intervals where the function is increasing or decreasing.
