|Module 8 - Derivative of a Function|
|Introduction | Lesson 1 | Lesson 2 | Lesson 3 | Self-Test|
In this module you will use the TI-89 to compute and describe derivatives of functions. You will use the formal definition, as well as TI-89 derivative features, to find the derivative of a function at a point. The dynamic graphing abilities of the TI-89 will help you connect the concept of derivative with local linearity. You will also use a TI-89 program to animate tangent lines of a function, which may help to conceptualize the derivative as a function.
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:
