    find the first derivative, and find the critical points which are the values of x which could either be a local max or a local min. then you have to take the second derivative to determine the concavity of the function, if f''(x)>0 the graph is concave up and you have a local min.... if f''(x)<0 the graph is concave down and you have a local max
