I need to create a function that has one turning point and one point of inflection. I have no idea what I'm doing!

Try xe^{x}. The general idea is that is has a max (the turning point) and then asymptotically goes to 0 (as x becomes infinite), so it needs to switch from concave to convex along the way.
