# 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

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 http://qpr.ca/math/applets/DerivGraph/.

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 🙂

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't mix both types of math entry in your comment.
