Partial derivatives and Tangent plane
- Juan Carlos Ponce Campuzano
This simulation shows the geometric interpretation of the partial derivatives of f(x,y) at point A in . It also shows the tangent plane at that point. Things to try:
- Drag the point A in the xy-plane or type specific values on the boxes.
- Select the object you want to show: Tangent plane, fx or fy.
- Use right click and drag the mouse to rotate the 3D view or click on View button.
