The seven calculus models in this item demonstrate differentiation and integration of functions. The default Derivative Machine Model allows users to select a function and plot that function and its derivatives. Additional models are available as supplemental documents.

First and Second Derivative ModelThis simulation demonstrates the limit process in deriving the first derivative of a sine function with a superimposed linear term (a straight line) . For this case the second derivative should be independent of the linear term.

Definite IntegralThis simulation demonstrates definite integration of the sine function by the simple algorithm of summing approximative rectangles. The red curve shows the sine function itself.

Riemann and Lebesgue Integral ModelThe simulation uses a parabola to demonstrate the Riemann integral and the Lebesgue integral.

Riemann Integral ModelAn approximate Riemann Integral of a sine function is shown. The left window shows in red the approximation by the supinum series, with the blue point as the sum; the function always lies below the rectangle. The right window shows the approximation by the infimum series; the function always lies above the rectangle.
