Root Finding Using Bisection

by William Stein Newton's Method

Note that there is a more complicated Newton's method below.

by William Stein A contour map and 3d plot of two inverse distance functions

by William Stein A simple tangent line grapher

by Marshall Hampton Numerical integrals with the midpoint rule

by Marshall Hampton Numerical integrals with various rules

by Nick Alexander (based on the work of Marshall Hampton) Some polar parametric curves

by Marshall Hampton. This is not very general, but could be modified to show other families of polar curves. Function tool

Enter symbolic functions f, g, and a, a range, then click the appropriate button to compute and plot some combination of f, g, and a along with f and g. This is inspired by the Matlab funtool GUI. Newton-Raphson Root Finding

by Neal Holtz

This allows user to display the Newton-Raphson procedure one step at a time. It uses the heuristic that, if any of the values of the controls change, then the procedure should be re-started, else it should be continued. Coordinate Transformations

by Jason Grout  Taylor Series

by Harald Schilly Illustration of the precise definition of a limit

by John Perry

I'll break tradition and put the image first. Apologies if this is Not A Good Thing. A graphical illustration of sin(x)/x -> 1 as x-> 0

by Wai Yan Pong by Marshall Hampton. This is pretty simple, so I encourage people to spruce it up. In particular, it isn't set up to show all possible types of quadrics. The midpoint rule for numerically integrating a function of two variables

by Marshall Hampton by Jason Grout

The output shows the points evaluated using Gaussian quadrature (using a weight of 1, so using Legendre polynomials). The vertical bars are shaded to represent the relative weights of the points (darker = more weight). The error in the trapezoid, Simpson, and quadrature methods is both printed out and compared through a bar graph. The "Real" error is the error returned from scipy on the definite integral.  Vector Calculus, 2-D Motion

By Rob Beezer

A fast_float() version is available in a worksheet Vector Calculus, 3-D Motion

by Rob Beezer

Available as a worksheet Multivariate Limits by Definition

by John Travis  Directional Derivatives

This interact displays graphically a tangent line to a function, illustrating a directional derivative (the slope of the tangent line). 3D graph with points and curves

By Robert Marik

This sagelet is handy when showing local, constrained and absolute maxima and minima in two variables. Available as a worksheet Approximating function in two variables by differential

by Robert Marik Taylor approximations in two variables

by John Palmieri

This displays the nth order Taylor approximation, for n from 1 to 10, of the function sin(x2 + y2) cos(y) exp(-(x2+y2)/2). Volumes over non-rectangular domains

by John Travis Lateral Surface Area

Note that this works in Sage cell, but causes a zip file error in Jupyter Parametric surface example
