Vector Components Model  [ Computer Program ]

Match Score:
100
Byline:
A. Duffy
The Vector Components model allows the user to split a vector into its components, and practice finding the magnitude and direction of a vector if you know the components. In the…
Vector Addition Model  [ Computer Program ]

Match Score:
100
Byline:
A. Duffy
The Vector Addition model allows the user to practice vector addition of two vectors in two dimensions. You are given the magnitude and direction of the two vectors, and your goal is…
Function Visualizer Model  [ Computer Program ]

Match Score:
100
Byline:
W. Christian and F. Esquembre
The Function Visualizer Model displays the graph of a function f(x) with arbitrary parameters.  The function can contain polynomial, trigonometric, and exponential expressions as…
Data Fitting JS Model  [ Computer Program ]

Match Score:
100
Byline:
F. Esquembre
The Data Fitting JS Model uses a least square fitting algorithm to fit a polynomial curve to a data set. Users can add points by clicking within the plotting panel. This model is…
Fibonacci Sphere Model  [ Computer Program ]

Match Score:
100
Byline:
W. Christian
The Fibonacci Sphere Model draws n equidistant points on a sphere by distributing the points on a Fibonacci spiral. The sequence the produces this distribution separates advances the…
Fibonacci Spiral Model  [ Computer Program ]

Match Score:
100
Byline:
W. Christian
The Fibonacci Spiral Model draws a geometric spiral whose growth is regulated by the Fibonacci series. Its growth parallels the rapid growth of the series itself. The golden spiral…

Hidden Function Model  [ Computer Program ]

Match Score:
100
Byline:
W. Christian
The Hidden Function model evaluates a function f(x) with parameters. It is designed to teach function concepts by allowing a teacher to define a function, hide that function in a…
Function Plotting and Data Fitting Model  [ Computer Program ]

Match Score:
100
Byline:
L. Engelhardt
The Function Plotting and Data Fitting Model allows you to create customizable plots to interactively explore the properties of up to five functions at a time.  When you…
Cubic Spline Model  [ Computer Program ]

Match Score:
100
Byline:
W. Christian
The Cubic Spline Model displays a cubic spline and its derivatives. The model constructs N third-order piecewise continuous polynomialz (cubic splines) that connect N data points…
