**Homework Statement**

Given a graph of f(x,y), how can you determine where the partial and second derivatives are positive, negative, or zero?

**The attempt at a solution**

The first partial derivative is fairly easy to picture so I'm more concerned about the second partial derivative. I'm having troubles imagining what this would look like and an explanation could come of use. Thanks in advance for the help.
