A Collection of Calculus Applets
A marvelous collection of 23 applets to support the teaching of calculus. The ones that I feel are most useful for Maths B and C are:
Surfing (Derivatives) Secant Line and Tangent Line
Derivatives of Cubic Functions Rectangle Approximation Method
The Number e (1) Limit of sin(x) / x
The Little Deriver
Type in an expression, and the Little Deriver will find its derivative symbolically. A great way to check homework!
The Coffee Cup Caustic
Not calculus, but I didn’t know where else to put it. Have you ever seen a strange cresent of light in a cup of coffee that is held in bright sunlight? This applet will show you how it is formed. It is simple, and effective.
