Higher-order Derivatives

The first derivative is the slope of a curve, and the second derivative is the slope of the slope, like acceleration. So what's the third derivative? (Fun fact: it's actually called jerk.)

Graphical Interpretation

In the above diagram, the red curve is the graph of a function \(f,\) and the blue curve is the graph of its first derivative \(f'.\) What is the relationship between \(f'(-1)\) and \(f''(1) ?\)

Given the graph of \(y=f''(x)\) above, which of the following is a possible graph of \(y=f(x)?\)
