On the "Analyzing Fcns Using Derivatives" Unit Test/Retest, Problem #9 on both--has where students compare the f, f', f" given the f" graph. The teaching/learning lessons and Smart Notebook did not cover this. However, I feel they need to so students understand that f represents height, f' represents slope, and f" represents concavity. Thanks and have a great day!

Dear Deb Yoast, Thank you for your comment. We apologize that one of us did not get back to you sooner. I've forwarded your comment to members our Calculus writing team. When they get to the "Analyzing Functions Using Derivatives" unit, they'll look into making changes to the files. Kind regards, Audra

Hi Ms. Yoast, I just wanted to mention that the given function graphed on #9 is the function, f, not the second derivative. This might help clear up the confusion. Let us know if you have additional questions. Thank you, Katie
