    For the increasing portion you only need to find the second derivative, and find out where it's positive. That will tell you a POSITIVE rate of change of the velocity, i.e,. increasing. Also, the position when it is furthest to the left is where v=0. So find where the derivative vanishes and then plug in to the position to see which one is furthest "left".
