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.

Calculus Models are part of "Learning and Teaching Mathematics using Simulations â€“ Plus 2000 Examples from Physics" ISBN 978-3-11-025005-3, Walter de Gruyter GmbH & Co. KG

This 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.

An 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.
