This page contains links to mathlets used in class, lab and homework assignments.

- Graphing utilities and demonstrations:
- Simple Graph Applet: Displays graphs of functions and allows for easy zooming in and out.
- MultiGraph Applet: Demonstrates the effects of adding and multiplyting constants to shift and stretch graphs of functions.
- Morphing Applet: Demonstrates morphing one function into another by adjusting one constant.
- Function Composition Applet: Demonstrates compositions graphically.

- Secant Tangent Applet: Demonstrates the idea of approximating the slope of a tangent line using slopes of secant lines.
- Epsilon-Delta Applet: Explores the definition of limits.
- Newton's Method Applet: Demonstrates how Newton's Method works.
- Riemann Sums
- Riemann Sums Applet: Approximate areas under curves using rectangles and trapezoids.
- This applet from Japan illustrates Riemann sums for a particular volume.
- Simpson's Rule applet

- Sequences of Functions applet. This is useful for graphing power series.
- Parametric and Polar Equations
- Parametric Curve Applet
- Cycloids and spirals at Maths online
- Cycloid Applet
- another Cycloid page
- SpiroGraph simulation that gives parametric equations involved.
