    a ceiling function rounds a number up to an integer. When graphing it its just a step function so you are graphing |dw:1356815365487:dw| the way it works is if x = -1.9 that is rounded up to -1, and then you double it so f(-1.9) = 2 times -1 = -2 same for all the values upto and including x = -1.... hope it makes sense.
