@Mr.Wizard: George's answer is perfect as I want to produce a table showing $\lim\limits_{t\to1}\frac{h(t)-h(1)}{t-1}=56.34$ for students being introduced to finding the derivative of $h(t)=58t-0.83t^2$ for the first time. By the way, thanks for your comment on disabling the Suggestions bar.

This worked. Wolfram Support also called me this morning and I shared this code and your comment about turning the Suggestions Bar off with them. The advisor on the phone said "Yes, we also make that suggestion."

comment Continuation of a Problem with Manipulate
my #1 concern is the writing of notebooks to help students and instructors at our school be introduced to mathematica at a level that is easiest for beginners to understand. One of my favorite books is the Students's Introduction to Mathematica. It has been extremely helpful, but the authors wrap manipulate inside a module and they place modules inside manipulate. Do you have a text recommendation that trains its readers to use the manipulate command at a proper level?

Oh my goodness! http://mathematica.stackexchange.com/questions/72422/controltype-none-vs-module‌​-inside-manipulate-i-e-making-everything-local/72477#72477 is a blast from the past. I don't remember reading this before. Might have had something to do with Christmas vacation. But it is awesome and I checked it for credit and I'm going to study it in detail tonight. Awesome help Michael. You are really helping me.

comment A problem with Manipulate
@MartinJohnHadley: See http://mathematica.stackexchange.com/questions/84378/continuation-of-a-problem-‌​with-manipulate for a continuation of this problem. I can't create notebooks for my students with numerous Manipulates and other static stuff if I am just using this Initialization idea. However, I would like to again thank you for your help.
