|Derivative of sinus function||Maths||Calculus|
The animation shows the tangent to the sinus function as a function of the angle, as well as the derivative function.
The tangent and the derivative are shown for increasing angles.
- Pause the simulation
- Go backwards step by step
- Restart the animation
Explain the relationship between the tangent line and the derivative function at each point.
Use the pause-backwards option to analyse specific points in detail (maximum, minimum, zero, etc.).
