I need to find such a function. Any ideas about how to approach this? We have just covered Sard's theorem if that provides some sort of insight on how I should tackle this.

Thanks

I was hoping to find a non-trivial example, but thank you. Yeah, I agree that Sard's probably isn't applicable here.

Oops! I meant critical values, not critical points

Solved! Sum of bump functions
