In this recipe, we show how to create a complete illustration that might be useful in a calculus textbook, using arrows and the
screen coordinate system to lead the eye around a cycle of graphs. The following figure shows what happens when we take successive derivatives of a sine wave:
The following script will give you the previous figure:
