The error analysis for the Runge-Kutta discontinuous Galerkin (RKDG) method for solving the scalar nonlinear conservation laws for the case of a smooth solution has been given in  and for the case of having a fully developed shock has given in . We use the Cubic Front Tracking and RKDG method to obtain the solution for the case between  and  where a shock is forming but not fully developed yet. The numerical smoothness approach used in  is generalized for the case between  and .
