On this wikipage, we can learn how to find the local extrema, the intervals on which the function is increasing and decreasing, the point of inflection, and the concavity of the function. We can find these points and intervals either graphically or algebraically: we can analyze the graph of f(x), f'(x), or f''(x) to find them, or we can find the derivatives of the given function, set the derivatives equal to zero, and then find the points for which we are looking by using a sign line.
