At right is the graph of a function with tangent lines drawn at and . . Use the slopes provided in the graph to write the slope function . Also, write an equation for

First make a prediction about the shape of the slope graph. The original graph is a parabola. What will the slope graph look like?

Next, make a table showing -values and their corresponding slopes. Be sure to include that when , the slope is (after all, look at the horizontal tangent line).

Use your table to find an equation of the slope function.
