## 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.

## Taylor Series

## 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.

by Wai Yan Pong

## Quadric Surface Plotter

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

## Gaussian (Legendre) quadrature

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

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

## 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).

## Lateral Surface Area

by John Travis

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

## Parametric surface example

by Marshall Hampton

Note that this works in Sage cell, but causes a zip file error in Jupyter.
