Watch the PatrickJMT video on Curve-Sketching 1, it should make sense now.

End Behaviour and Curve Sketching, what’s on the Quest next class (Feb 19/20)?

Here’s a Calculus 1 midterm from Douglas College that you could try. We’ve done most of the things except for the comments I’ve written. Next up, we’re doing Distance, Velocity, Acceleration questions. You can view this video for an intro to Vector and Scalar quantities.
