    It could be that your calculator is not set up to produce function like derivatives such as 2x, and will only produce a list of values on the curve of the derivative. Or it could be that there is a mode in which to do what you want, and you have to switch to it.

    Might I suggest you use Wolfram-Alpha on the internet for these and other computations. It is very comprehensive and always in the right mode.
