I'm trying to find a way to manipulate a function and its derivative, but two variables of the function change. Is there a way to manipulate multiple graphs with the same set of parameters? Meaning, if I increase a variable for the function, the derivative will adjust to it?

  • $\begingroup$ Take a look at Manipulate. On demonstrations.wolfram.com you can find lots and lots of examples on what you can do with that. $\endgroup$ – Yves Klett Mar 10 '16 at 7:07

How about this...

f[n_, x_] := Sin[2 Pi n x];
g[n_, x_] := D[f[n, x], x]; 
Manipulate[Plot[{f[n , x], Evaluate[g[n, x]]}, {x, 1, 10}], {n, 0.5, 4}]
