Graphing the Derivative of a Function
In order to be successful with this applet, you will need to have a solid understanding of the geometric interpretations of the derivative. Recall that the derivative graph will be negative if the original graph is sloping downwards and the derivative graph will be positive if the original graph is sloping upwards.
For an example that demonstrates how to sketch a graph of a derivative given the graph of a function click here
