  • Mom, look how many peaks there are!
  • I know; Isn't nature lovely!
  • The largest mountain to the left is the relative maximum or the extrema.
  • What does that mean, Mom?
  • A relative maximum means the highest point in a particular section of  graph.
  • But this isn't a graph. It is a mountain range.
  • The term can be used to describe things other than just graphs. 
  • What? Other than graphs and mountain ranges, how would someone use this?
  • That is so cool!
  • Well roller coaster engineers use the relative maximum of the roller coaster to make sure the ride gains enough momentum and runs smoothly.
  • Yes, it is very interesting. Oh my! looks like it is getting late! Let's head home.
  • Aw, okay!
