PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This activity introduces students to the concept of evaluating the slope of a tangent line to a curve. Students are asked to draw in several tangent lines at various points to the graphs of y=x^2 and y=sin(x). They then use their algebra knowledge to approximate the slope of the tangent lines they have drawn, and make conjectures about the slope equation (derivative). I have students complete this before introducing the limit definition of the derivative.
