Click on the different questions to choose different functions. Use the slider to move the tangent to the function and find the slope of the tangent at different points along the function. Do the slopes of the tangents follow a particular pattern? Could you describe this pattern? Could you write down the algebra of this pattern? Click on the different solutions to show the derivative (or slope function) of each function.
