Description: 
This applet investigates differential calculus of powers of x (polynomials). You can plot the primary function ( ƒ(x) ), its first derivative (differential, the gradient function) ( ƒ'(x) ) and its second derivative ( ƒ''(x), the gradient of the gradient ) side by side for comparison. Use the applet to investigate increasing and decreasing functions, maximum, minimum and other turning points. See how the first and second differentials vary with the primary function.
