This is another video in the Year 11 Mathematical Methods (VCE Units 1 and 2) course looking at how to apply the differentiation work learned in previous videos. This video looks at stationary points. It explains what they are and how we can differentiate a function and find them. I look at what a maximum point is, what a minimum point is and what a stationary point of inflection is. There are a number of worked examples and everything is explained in an easy to understand way.
