The purpose of this report is to presents a collection of Tangent Estimates that can be used for the Numerical Differentiation of Tabular Functions. Derived by fitting Conic Segments to three adjacent points on the Tabular Function, these central difference formulas have been reduced to equations expressed in terms of the local secants.
