When we were initially learning about derivatives we had difficulty understanding and visualizing their applications. This project uses manipulates and a number of functions to help explain the basics of derivatives to incoming calculus students. Tangent Lines, The Basic Definition Of A Derivative, Power Rule, Chain Rule, Trig Functions, Product Rule, Quotient Rule, Techniques for Finding Maxima and Minima, and L'H˘pital's Rule, are all concepts that are covered in this lesson.
