This resource is part of a collection of Nuffield Maths resources exploring Calculus. The demand is roughly equivalent to that in GCE A level.

This stationary points activity shows students how to use differentiation to find stationary points on the curves of polynomial functions. It includes the use of the second derivative to determine the nature of the stationary point. Students will learn how to use this and other information to sketch the curves, then use graphic calculators to check their answers.
