Introduction to differential and integral calculus

The animation illustrates the mathematical relationship between a derivation function and a master function.

The curve in the upper right area defines the position of the object. The shape of the curve can be changed with the mouse. The first derivation function refers to the speed, the second to the acceleration. Both derivation functions adapt automatically when the master function is changed.

The animation was originally developed as a offline application for Windows and Macintosh systems and for integration into Microsoft PowerPoint slides. The online version presented here serve as a preview. The exe or app file can be downloaded free of charge from members area.



The curve, which describes the distance covert by the object, can be manipulated using the mouse. The start and end points can be moved. The slopes are adjusted with the other markers.

In the illustration of the moving object in the upper left area, the acceleration is represented by a vector arrow.
