For each graph below:

  1. Trace on your paper and write a slope statement for .

  2. Sketch the graph of using a different color.

Slope statements should tell a story, starting at the left side of the graph and ending at the right side.
There should be a description of where the function is increasing or decreasing and how the rate in which it is increasing or decreasing is changing.

Steep positive slopes on should have very high -values on the graph of . While steep negative slopes on should have very low -values on the graph of . Maxima and minima on have slope, so they are roots on the graph of .
