abstract = {A typical problem that calculus students are asked to solve is: Given a differentiable function y = f(x), find the equation of the line tangent to the graph of y = f(x) at the point (a, f(a)). The tangent line type problem that we will consider involves finding a differentiable function y = g(x) whose tangent lines have a given form. We have used Maple as a tool to help us in creating examples, making conjectures, and providing insight into the solution of our problem. (orig.)},
