    the derivative tells you how the graph behave when you look real close at it. so close that it straightens out

    you can see the slope of a point along a curve ith the 1st derivative

    the 2nd derivatie shows you how the graph is bending..concavity

    so is the first the gradient? and is the second one for stationary points?

    derivatives are concrete, attainable, exact.... integrals are an art, a feeling, a sense.....

    think of concavity like a bowl sitting on the window sill; it is concave up.....or CAVE opens upward

    concavity tells us how the graph opens up or down

    integration is adding up alot of small parts; its the opposite of derivatives. integration takes all the small derivative bits and adds them together to get a whole again
