This applet is designed to build the intuition between the idea of a derivative being the slope of the line tangent to a curve and the idea of a derivative as a function symbolically computed from

This webpage contains links to two separate ActionScript applets for graphing multiple functions.

Three adjacent windows display graphs of (1) a function \(f\), a tangent line, and color-coded horizontal and vertical segments for the coordinates of the point of tangency, (2) a function \(g\),
Wolfram's MathWorld has descriptions of the chain rule, both single variable and multivariable versions.
Wolfram's demo for the chain rule, with a selection of possible "inside" and "outside" functions, and sliders for specifying a value of \(x\) and for adjusting the scales of plots showing graphs o
This site includes descriptions and examples of the Product Rule, the Reciprocal Rule, and the Quotient Rule.
MSOffice Math is a free add-on to the MSWord2007 that allows the user to insert editable math notation, to simplify algebraic expressions, to solve equations, to differentiate or integrate functio

Two adjacent windows display graphs of (1) a function \(f\)  and a tangent line, and (2) the derivative \(f  '\).

Wolfram's demo for the first four derivatives of a fifth degree polynomial, with sliders for the coefficients of the polynomial and a particular value of \(x\).
