  My Courses this semester:
Dynamic Visualization Tools for Multivariable Calculus
      a project supported in part by a grant from the NSF (National Science Foundation)

      Multivariable Calculus Project Site               CalcPlot3D Exploration Applet

In case the main project website above is ever down, here is an older version of the applet on a different serverArchived CalcPlot3D

Professor Seeburger's Dynamic Math Pages:
  • My Dynamic Calculus Website:  Presently this site allows you to download a collection of Excel Calculus Explorations that I created and/or PDF handouts from math conference presentations and workshops I have given.  You can also contribute to a discussion on the topic of using technology to help students visualize calculus.
     
  • Applets supporting Larson Calculus:  A collection of applets I created for exploring Calculus using the Larson ET textbook.
     
  • Applets supporting Hughes-Hallett Calculus:  A collection of applets I created for exploring Calculus using the Hughes-Hallett Calculus textbook.
  • Applets supporting Anton Calculus: A collection of applets I wrote for exploring Calculus.  Here is a link to the old 8th edition applets:  Anton 8th edition applets
  • Applets supporting Salas Calculus:  A second collection of applets I created for exploring Calculus.
     
  • Equation Grapher : This applet allows you to graph an equation of the form,  y =  f(x).
  • Equation Grapher with Calculus Explorations : This applet allows you to see the tangent lines to the graph of a function as you move along its graph, the graph of a function and its derivative together, the area function formed by accumulating the area under a graph, and much more. 

    (To enable copying of the graph's image to the clipboard as an EMF image for Word, with CTRL-c, click here and choose Run when asked about the certificate.)  Sometimes it is helpful to resize the browser window to resize the graph while keeping the text larger for small graphs.  (for previous version: click here)
     
  • Difference Quotient Exploration :  This applet allows you to see how the difference quotient function (f(x + h)  -  f(x))/h approaches the derivative function, f '(x), by varying the value of h (the change in x).

    Computing Volumes:
  • Washer Method Exploration :  With this applet, you can explore solids of revolution using the washer method.  (Link to old version of applet.)
  • Shell Method Exploration :  Similar to the previous applet, but explores solids of revolution using the shell method.  (Link to old version of applet.)
  • Volumes of a Common Cross-Section Exploration : This applet allows you to explore solids formed by cross-sections that are the same shape, but whose size is determined by their base over a given region in the plane.  (Link to old version of applet.)

    Slope Fields:
  • Slope Field Exploration :  Use this tool to explore the slope fields of first-order differential equations and to visually check their general solutions.
    (To enable copying of the image to the clipboard as an EMF image for Word, with CTRL-c, click here and choose Run when asked about the certificate.)
  • Direction Field Exploration:  An updated version of the Slope Field Exploration that displays direction fields (with arrows) by default.

    Multivariable Calculus:
  • 3D Function Plotter & Taylor Polynomials of functions of 2 variables :  Use this tool to graph functions of two variables. 

    You can also choose to view the Taylor Polynomials in two variables of these functions.  The default center point is (0, 0), but you can enter another point to center the expansion about by hitting CTRL-d.

    Note that this applet has been greatly expanded in the
    CalcPlot3D Exploration Applet described above.

Note:  My Dynamic Math Pages and the graphic at the top of this page are Java applets, and require your browser to be Java-enabled.

Check to see if you can enable Java in your browser.

If not, then Click here to install Java on your computer.
