 Calling Sequence TangentTutor(f, a) TangentTutor(f, var=a)

Parameters

 f - (optional) algebraic expression in one variable var a - (optional) point var - (optional) variable

Description

 • The TangentTutor(f) command launches a tutor interface that plots the tangent line to the graph of f at the point a and computes the equation of the tangent line.
 If f is not specified, TangentTutor uses a default function.
 If a is not specified, TangentTutor uses a default point.
 If var is not specified, TangentTutor uses a default variable.
