Project # ____ For ____ Points (in) Calculus II
Show a graph of a function that is a straight line
and list that function with the added condition
that the graph of a derivative of this function
is a parabola. Click the above link for another hint if you considered this question for a while but need a hint after that thinking. The following comments or questions may also give a hint or two before you look for elementary hints!
Show the graph of the derivative and list the
derivative as a function.
Show how you know that your straight line
function and parabola function are related
by a derivative.
Show that the type of derivative you used for
this project will always yeild a parabola function
for any straight line that does not pass through
the pole! (Was that a hint or what?)
