From: Michael Palmer To: Teacher2Teacher Public Discussion Date: 2005050420:25:35 Subject: Re: Third Derivative But what really does concavity mean. It seems to only have significance if it is positive negative or 0. The magnitude of concavity seems meaningless...leading to the question what is the real use of the third and higher derivatives other than that they are derivatives of derivatives?
