Parameters

 f(x) - expression in x x - independent variable a - value of x at the desired point of tangency

Description

 • Important: The student package has been deprecated. Use the superseding command Student[Calculus1][Tangent] instead.
 • This routine generates a graph of the function defined by the expression f(x) and its tangent line at the point [a, f(a)].
 • The command with(student,showtangent) allows the use of the abbreviated form of this command.
