Since the definition of derivative is the limit of the incremental rapport as h approaches 0 of ( f(x + h) - f(x) ) / h ), the geometrical meaning of a derivative is the slope of the tangent line in a general point (x, y) of the function (we assume the the function is sharp through all the points in its domain).
