Introduction

Types of stationary points

Applications of differentiation

Year 12

This video takes a further look at stationary points considering the Point of Inflection. The video looks at finding the nature of stationary points by testing either side of the turning point and using double differentiation. There is a consideration of how it all looks graphically alongside how you can use double differentiation to find points of maximum gradient.
