How to graph a derivative on HP Prime? - mayradio0508 - 09-28-2014 07:35 PM
I'm currently taking a calculus course and I'm supposed to be able to graph a derivative of a function using a graphing calculator. The textbook says to input nDer(f(x),x) but I can't seem to figure it out. I've tried various things and sometimes it comes out as a line at y=0 but most of the things I've tried don't graph anything at all. Can someone explain to me how to graph a derivative of a function, such as f(x)= lnx? RE: How to graph a derivative on HP Prime? - mkspence - 09-28-2014 08:05 PM

Two ways, you'll need the derivative template [Template Key, 1st row, 4th column] Let d represent the "curvy derivative symbol". Textbook entry: F1(X) = LN(X) F2(X) = (d F1(X))/(dX=X) or directly: F1(X) = (d LN(x))/(dX = X) Algebraic Entry: F1(X) = d( LN(X), X=X) RE: How to graph a derivative on HP Prime? - Chris Pem10 - 10-06-2014 04:57 PM
This seems like the most logical way to ask the calc to plot a function and its derivative... the syntax seems completely logical and "correct", but it just doesn't work. [attachment=1112] [attachment=1113] But yeah; putting dX=X in the denominator works: [attachment=1114] [attachment=1115] Of course this works as expected in the CAS environment... but that's old news here.
