4434Mathematical Visualization Toolkit
https://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=89767
This site consists of a collection of plotting and solving applets featuring a uniform user interface. This site was selected as the 2005 MERLOT Classics Award winner for the Mathematics discipline due to its value and effectiveness as a set of teaching/learning tools. Visualizing mathematical concepts, especially in three-dimensional space, can be quite difficult for students. These tools and applications enable students to see the concepts in action and to come a deeper understanding of the underlying mathematics. In addition, the collaboration between the faculty, students and Sun Microsystems staff who together designed and constructed these tools was quite unusual and impressive. The collaboration itself is an inspiring model.Tue, 17 Jul 2001 00:00:00 -0700Function Grapher
https://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=89592
Graphs one or more functions of a single variable, with zoom in/out and other nice features.Thu, 31 May 2001 00:00:00 -0700Numerical integration simulation
https://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=75032
This is a Java-enhanced tutorial that allows students to learn about the rectangular, midpoint, and trapezoidal methods of numerical integration.Mon, 16 Mar 1998 00:00:00 -0800Surface Plotter
https://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=88968
A Java applet which allows one to sketch surfaces given byz = f(x,y).Tue, 3 Apr 2001 00:00:00 -0700Riemann Sums
https://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=75914
This applet visually represents Riemann sums, including left rectangle, right rectangle, midpoint, Simpson's, and trapezoidal. The relation of these sums to the antiderivative is explored.Sun, 2 Dec 2001 00:00:00 -0800Ellipse and Hyperbola Review
https://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=252390
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.)Tue, 1 May 2007 07:47:53 -0700Famous Curves (Math)

Interactive exporation of famous curves in the history of MathFri, 20 Jun 1997 00:00:00 -0700Introduction to Calculus Applets
https://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=343859
This site consists of several dozen applets, each pertaining to a different aspect of single variable Calculus. Topics covered range from continuity and limits to differential equations and infinite series. Each applet is on a separate page that also includes detailed explanations of the concept under review along with suggestions for student experimentation with the applet. Each applet can be opened in a resizable window for better viewing as a classroom demonstration.Sat, 11 Oct 2008 17:09:46 -0700Vector Fields Simulation
https://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=75572
This applet demonstrates various properties of vector fields. You can select from a number of vector fields and see how particles move in the field if it is treated as either a velocity or a force field. This helps you visualize the field. Also you can see the values of the divergence and curl of the field. [From Author's Description]Mon, 17 Sep 2001 00:00:00 -0700Numerical Integration Rules
https://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=91273
Illustrates the relationship between integration and the area under a function.Tue, 29 Aug 2000 00:00:00 -0700
