DERIVATIVE AND TANGENT LINE

You can enter your function, or choose one from the menu, in the first
row, and choose scale for the diagram in the next rows. Moving the
slider will move the tangent line across the diagram. With first and
or second derivative selected, you will see curves and values of these
derivatives of your function, along with the curve defined by your
function itself. Press ‘plot function’ whenever you change your input
function.

The derivative of your function is the slope of the moving tangent
line.
