Visualizing the Chain Rule (for Functions over R and C) and More
Kreminski, Rick
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, v40 n2 p277-287 Jan 2009
A visual approach to understanding the chain rule and related derivative formulae, for functions from R to R and from C to C, is presented. This apparently novel approach has been successfully used with several audiences: students first studying calculus, students with some background in linear algebra, students beginning study of functions of a complex variable, and current secondary school teachers obtaining professional development. (Contains 9 figures.)
