Module 8  Derivative of a Function 
Introduction  Lesson 1  Lesson 2  Lesson 3  SelfTest 
Introduction 
In this module you will use the TI89 to compute and describe derivatives of functions. You will use the formal definition, as well as TI89 derivative features, to find the derivative of a function at a point. The dynamic graphing abilities of the TI89 will help you connect the concept of derivative with local linearity. You will also use a TI89 program to animate tangent lines of a function, which may help to conceptualize the derivative as a function. Lesson Index: 8.1  Derivative at a Point 8.2  Local Linearity 8.3  The Derivative as a Function After completing this module, you should be able to do the following:
