Derivative Explorer - mgill

Use the indicated buttons and input boxes to explore different functions and their derivatives. When you press the "Animate a" button, you will see different values being traced for the derivative of your function. You can show the graph of the derivative function by using the check box (especially helpful if you are exploring other functions, and the trace only comes out as dots). Use the input bar to change the function. The dynamic text below the function bar will tell you the function being graphed, as well as its derivative.
