Sketching a Gradient Function
Given a graph of a function, sketch a graph of the 'gradient' function. Key Concepts: Gradient zero at stationary point ( Maximum or Minimum, Where a function is increasing, decreasing, stationary Excellent interactive sketching gradient functions Demo of Gradient Function (enable macros) Introduction to differentiation and motion graphs link to www.mathsroom.co.uk Calculus surfer  Thanks to Evelyn Knight for sourcing the link (homepages.gac.edu)
