How do I know if it is a MAXIMUM or MINIMUM point?
Differentiate again to find d^2y/dx^2 (the second derivative).--> if SMALLER than 0 it is a MAXIMUM POINT --> if BIGGER than 0 it is a MINIMUM POINT

How do I multiply fractions?
a/b x c/d = ac/bd

3 types: Translations (write as vectors!), Stretches, Reflections. Horizontal movements are inside brackets. Vertical movements are outside of brackets :)
