PatrickJMT takes you through step by step on the basics of how to use curve sketching to solve calculus equations. Steps that are covered in this two part video include domain, intercepts, symmetry, horizontal and vertical asymtotes, intervals of increase/decrease, local maximums and minimums, concavity and points of inflection, and finally the sketch. A rational function is looked at as an example. The problem is to graph y equals (x  1) divided by x to the power of 2. This video clip covers up to local maximums and minimums. The second video will cover the steps on finding concavity and points of inflection and the completed sketch.
