Graphing Magic

Graphing Magic plots 2D and 3D functions. The 2D functions include polar, parametric and implicit functions. The 3D include cylindrical and sperical coordinates. It also plots solids such as solids of revolution and solids formed by slices. Many other 3D options are available. If you wish to run the program from your own machine, download it and unzip to its own folder.

Math Animation Magic

Mathematics Animation Magic is a program for creating web pages with animated mathematical drawings, 2D graphs, 3D graphs, ot mathematics text. The program is intended for teachers developing apps for their classroom or for tutorials. No programing knowledge is required.

Math Animation Apps

A collection of stand-alone animated mathematics web pages created with Math Animation Magic. Use them as is or import them into Math Animation Magic to help learn to create your own apps.

EASIWord

EASIWord is an addin for Microsoft Word that makes it easy to insert mathematical expressions, symbols, graphs, and drawings into Word documents. The program installs a setup program on your desktop. When the setup is executed, it moves various files to your templates folder. Warning: because of moving various files, some virus protection software believes that this installer contains a virus. The software as distributed on this site has no virus, but you will probably be warned that it might.

Math Blog Magic

Math Blog Magic makes it easy to create a blog containing mathematics text. In addition images, graphs, and other objects can be inserted. The mathematics text will automatically float around the text. The program has components that are stored on the local machine and others that are stored on the server. The Sample Blog shows what a blog might look like depending on the settings you choose. The Sample Maker has some functions disabled for our security.

Math Magic

Math Magic symplifies expressions and solves equations symbolically giving either exact or approximate answers. In addition it calcuates symbolic derivatives.

Sequence Patterns

This program is used find a polynomial that generates a given sequence. For example, 2,4,5 returns the polynomial . It has become popular in the elementary curriculum to lead the students to believe that there is a unique formula generating a finite sequence of numbers. This program demonstrates that there are in fact infinitely many such formulas.

Summation Formulas

Nearly every introductory calculus class uses summations to compute the area under a polynomial function. However, the summation formulas are usually either not proven or are proved using induction with no clue given to how they are derived. This page derives an interesting recursion formula for obtaining the elementary summation formulas.
