## Main Question or Discussion Point

I have a function with one and only one local/global maxium.... (i.e. half the function has positive slope, half the function has negative slope). And I want to find the maximum point on the function. How can I find the function's max?

I was thinking of turning the function into its derivative and using Newton's Method for finding the zero..... are there better ways?
