PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This activity presents students with a piece-wise defined function that models a portion of the roller coaster "The Racer". Students are then introduced to the concepts of concavity and points of inflection. The activity walks them through graphing a sketch of the derivative function and then asks them to make connections between concavity and points of inflection and the graph of the first derivative. The intent is to get them to see for themselves the need for the second derivative.
