This applet is a sub-site of the Math Applets for Calculus at SLU site. It provides the user with an interactive graphical interface through which he can create different hyperbolas and ellipsis. The shapes and types of conics are changed by manually changing crucial parameters (i.e., focal distance, axis, etc.)

This applet is a sub-site of the Math Applets for Calculus at SLU site. This applet is designed for the visual exploration of functions defined as a sum over k of terms in x. The user can also enter and plot another function: for example, the limit function of the series when it can be expressed in closed form.

This applet is a sub-site of the Math Applets for Calculus at SLU site. This applet provides a graphical interface through which the user can input the function f(x), the point about which to expand, and the degree of the Taylor polynomial approximation. The applet graphs f(x), the Taylor polynomial, and the error function.

This is a page of links to applets that can be used in courses below the level of calculus. Most of these applets have been constructed at Saint Louis University Department of Mathematics and Computer Science. Some applets are designed to explore triangle construction or to illustrate various theorems from geometry and trigonometry. Other applets deal with the construction of graphs of functions, conics, and vectors.
