Unformatted text preview: the slope from the previous point to this point. iii) Write a sentence (you may type it in a cell) that describes how you verify that the curve in part (ii) is indeed the approx. deriv. of f(t). Include approximate particular values of t and f'(t) as evidence. Question C: Using Excel or some other spreadsheet, i) Graph f(x) = sin(x) on the x range [0,7] in steps of 0.1 ii) Also compute its approximate derivative the way we did in class, by taking the slope from the previous point to this point. iii) Now compute the 2nd derivative by the same method: using the approximatederivative column as your "y" values, compute the slope from the previous point to this point. iv) Graph all 3 data sets (f, f', f'') on the same graph. v) Write a sentence (you may type it in a cell) that describes how you verify that your 2ndderivative computation worked....
