This differentiation microscope lets you graphically explore if a function is differentiable at a given point . If you "zoom in" at any point and you see that in a very close neighborhood of the function looks like a linear function, then the function is differentiable at , otherwise not. Can you find points where is differentiable and points where otherwise it is not?
