Derivative graphs interactive

By Murray Bourne, 21 Nov 2012

I recently added a new interactive graph which lets you explore the changing slope of a few different curves as you change x-values.

Check out:

Derivatives Graphs

graphs of derivatives - interactive
One of the interactive derivative examples

Let me know what you think in the comments. Any suggestions?

    If you want to be able to change the function you might like the version at

  2. Murray says:

    Thanks Alan. Good to hear from you. Yah, I'll try to add the option for the user to enter their own function. I have to sort out the scaling so their graph is in view, but can be done. Providing limited choices is easier to control πŸ™‚

    I need some help.Am a first year student studying maths.Calculus has really become a thorn in my flesh

  4. Palfes says:

    please we need differentiation examples in pricise with well-organised graphs

  5. Murray says:

    @Palfes: Perhaps these 3 chapters my help:

    Introduction to Differentiation

    Applications of Differentiation

    Differentiation of Transcendental Functions

HTML: You can use simple tags like <b>, <a href="...">, etc.

To enter math, you can can either:

  1. Use simple calculator-like input in the following format (surround your math in backticks, or qq on tablet or phone):
    `a^2 = sqrt(b^2 + c^2)`
    (See more on ASCIIMath syntax); or
  2. Use simple LaTeX in the following format. Surround your math with \( and \).
    \( \int g dx = \sqrt{\frac{a}{b}} \)
    (This is standard simple LaTeX.)

NOTE: You can mix both types of math entry in your comment.
