Math Java Applets

Logo for Math Java Applets
This site contains a set of Java applets which can be used in undergraduate mathematics. These applets include regression applets, 2D graphing applets, applets to illustrate linear, quadratic, exponential and trigonometric functions, Riemann sums applets, and a Java MathPad, which can be used as a limited CAS which allows the user to define its own functions, evaluate them at any point, perform symbolic and numerical differentiation and limited symbolic integration. These applets all use a... More

As a general place to go for easy curve fitting, this is it.  I took it to class and used it as a demonstration for a linear algebra class where we were curve fitting from a variety of perspectives.  Then I went on to derive the regression formulas.  This was a good starting place and a quick way to generate examples.

Technical Remarks:

A little "no frills", but it covered a lot of ground.  Curve fitting for a variety of functions and technically very nice.
