Keywords Rolle's Theorem, tangent straight line, means value of the integral


In this paper, we present numerical exploration of Lagrange’s Mean Value Theorem. It considers a representative group of functions in order to determine in the first place, a straight line that averages the value of the integral and second for some of these same functions but within an interval, the tangent straight lines are generated. For both of these situations, Matlab software is used to obtain their derivative and roots in order to know when the x-axis of the slope equation is obtained. Its purpose is to show the didactic potential in the study of infinitesimal calculus by using software such as Matlab.
