The particular ability of the internet to demonstrate concepts interactively in a visually arresting fashion is fully realized in this attractive and easily navigated site. An interactive screen allows the user to select a function and examine the visual representation of its derivative through magnification of the resulting graph. The site provides a wonderful opportunity to see and understand the sometimes elusive concept of derivation. This resource is part of the Teaching Quantitative Skills in the Geosciences collection. http://serc.carleton.edu/quantskills/
