Derivative Trace

Learners construct the graph of derivatives using a tangent line.  In this construction of a graph of a derivative lesson, students use their Ti-Nspire to drag a tangent line along a graph.  Learners graph the slope of the tangent line.  Students discuss the similarities and differences between the original graph and its derivative.
