 # Concavity, Inflection Points, Increasing Decreasing, First & Second Derivative - Calculus This calculus video tutorial shows you how to find the intervals where the function is increasing and decreasing, the critical points or critical numbers, relative extrema such as local minimum and local maximum values using the first derivative test, concavity, and inflection points using the second derivative. This video contains plenty of examples and practice problems for you to work on.
