Appendix B Creating Dynamic Figures

Dynamic figures can be created using CalcPlot3D and placed in online OER textbooks or webpages. These figures can be rotatable 3D plots or 2D plots with or without slider controls. Typically only the plot window is displayed, while the menus and controls from the CalcPlot3D app are hidden.

Depending on the context, the exact HTML code used to embed them will vary.

These dynamic figures are already being used in OER textbooks in the LibreTexts platform, in PreTeXt OER textbooks and articles (like this one), in Geogebra books, and more.
