This is a three page foldable covering all the calculus curve sketching concepts (critical numbers, extrema, increasing/decreasing, points of inflections, and concavity), their definitions and how to find them using Calculus. My students find it easier to fill the foldable in over the week as we encounter the concepts in our discussions.
All my foldables are self-guided which allows the students to start the foldable in class for about 10 to 15 minutes then complete the AP style examples at home. This foldable can be used alone or glued into an Interactive Notebook the size of a 9½ by 7½ composition book. Hope this is helpful. Enjoy!
This is the second foldable for Ch. 3 in our calculus textbook on curve sketching thus the numbering 3-2. You can find another foldable related to the curve sketching chapter at
