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 \(x\).

Three adjacent windows display graphs of (1) a function \(f\)  and its derivative, (2) a function \(g\) and its derivative, and (3) a function \(h\) and its derivative.

Java applet allows the user to visualize the washer method for finding the volume of a solid formed by revolving a specific region about the \(x\)-axis.
This animation shows how a secant line approximates the tangent line at a fixed point when its other intersection with the curve is forced toward the fixed one. This is a Quick Time movie.
This animation shows how to use the slope of a curve to plot the derivative for that curve.
