This project is aimed at bridging the gap between how vector calculus is taught by mathematicians and how it is used by scientists.
This applet shows the path of a golf ball rolling on a putting green. You can choose to add the velocity, acceleration, and tangential and normal accelerations.

Geogebra tool that draws a parametric curve and shows acceleration vector and velocity vector

Maple package for computing line and surface integrals, as well as normal and tangent vectors, etc.
Explains the use of Riemann sums for evaluating double integrals, with accompanying rotatable 3D visualizations of a surface and a Riemann sum approximation.

This is a Mathematica lab worksheet that leads students through an exercise in finding the volume of liquid in a cylindrical tank that is tilted at some angle from the horizontal.

This resource provides a visualization of the velocity and acceleration vectors of a "puck" moving around in the plane.
Interactive java applet which allows the user to plot any two- or three-dimensional parametric curve together with associated tangent and normal vectors.

Simple learning unit with applets to study Cartesian, polar and oblique coordinates. Applets are accompanied by exercises and solutions.
