Differentiating Composite Functions1
This graph shows a riders distance from the ground (in meters) in relation to time elapsed (in seconds) from a specified point on the roller coaster ride. Pull point D along the graph to see the change in the slope of the line that is tangent to the function. Write your observations of the relationship between slope of the tangent line and the equation of the function.
As you pull point D along the function, what do you notice about the slope of the line that is tangent to the function?
