    Critical points are those "important" points, basically! Google is your friend: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Critical_point_(mathematics).

    I know what a critical point is. I don't know what it means to "classify" them.

    If I had a region then I would have an interior point and a boundary curve. But no region is given to me. so would they all be classified as "interior"?
