Problem:
Graph the slope field for the function f(x) = sin(x).
Visualization:
Using Microcalc:

  1. Choose Intermediate Calc from the initial menu and press .
  2. Use the arrow keys to move to the menu item Direction Fields, press and .
  3. Use the arrow keys to move to the menu item dy/dx = F(x, y), press .
  4. At the prompt F(x, y) =, enter the formula
    sin(x)
  5. Enter the bounds at the prompts
    x0 = -2pi
    x1 = 2pi
    y0 = -3
    y1 = 3
    You can enter pi by pressing at the same time.
