Finding Stationary Points of Cubic Functions C5
In this resource from the DfE Standards Unit, students find the stationary points of a cubic function, determine the nature of these stationary points and to discuss and understand these processes.Students should have some knowledge of differentiation of polynomials, finding stationary points of a quadratic function and using f ″(x) to determine their nature. (AS and A2 level)
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
