Why are we even able to have the second derivative?because the [derivative] is itself a function, we can calculate its derivative
If we have [y = f(x)] How would we write its [second derivative] ?we would write it as: (d^2y) / (dx^2)
In general what does the [derivative] of a function tell us?tells us whether a function is increasing or decreasing
In general, what do we think of the [derivative] as?we think of the derivative as a [rate of change]
