I am not going to count this as the 11th page of a 10 page textbook,
but rather as a reply. I found out tonight that these hypotenuse of
right triangles of points on the graph of a function are related to
the slope or derivative of the function at that point.

So in my previous graph of the function y=x^2 in 10 grid:

.    .    .    .    .    . ?                         x ?.    .    .  
 .    .    . ?                    x ?.    .    .    x    .    .
.    .    .    .    .    . ?0  .1  .2  .3  .4   .5

at x=.3, y=.09
at x=.4, y =.16 ?at x=.5, y =.25
Now each of those intervals of .1 width has 2 pure
triangles as these two

/  |
?/ __|
unioned with this triangle

|  \

So in the interval between .3 and .4 of a dx of .1 sits two triangles
where their hypotenuse cross one another and intersect at a point and
the same is true of the next dx =.1 interval of two triangles
intersecting and if we draw a line between the two intersections we
end up with the derivative. Sort of reminds me of the projective
geometry Desargues theorem.

But I need to confirm all of this.

The importance of this is that the picketfence model gets thrown out
and replaced by the pure 2 triangles aside each point of the graph of
a function and the 2 triangles determine the derivative and the
integral and it is easy to see how the derivative is the inverse of
