This GeoGebra applet plots the first and second derivative on the same graph. The tangent line to the graph of a function at a point is drawn.
This animation shows how to use the slope of a curve to plot the derivative for that curve.
This animation shows how a secant line approximates the tangent line at a fixed point when its other intersection with the curve is forced toward the fixed one. This is a Quick Time movie.
This applet is designed to build the student's visual intuition about the line tangent to a curve at a point being the limit of the secant lines through that point.
This applet is designed to build the intuition between the idea of a derivative being the slope of the line tangent to a curve and the idea of a derivative as a function symbolically computed from

This webpage contains links to two separate ActionScript applets for graphing multiple functions.

Three adjacent windows display graphs of (1) a function \(f\), a tangent line, and color-coded horizontal and vertical segments for the coordinates of the point of tangency, (2) a function \(g\),
Wolfram's MathWorld has descriptions of the chain rule, both single variable and multivariable versions.
