Free Maplets — Try Before you Buy
To start a Maplet, click on its name.
(The first Maplet may take a little longer to open because it needs to start Java.)
A thumbnail will appear as you hover over the Maplet title.

Please Rate the Maplets. We eventually want to have a 5 star rating and comments for each Maplet from students and faculty, so we need to collect data. Thanks.
Find the vertical asymptotes of a rational function.
Use the Bracketing Method to solve a continuous equation given the numerical values of the function.
Find the equation of the line tangent to the graph of a function. Try some numeric points and then some symbolic points.
Practice computing derivatives.
Learn how the graph of an inverse function is related to the graph of the function. Compute the derivatives of the function and its inverse function at corresponding points and then view the respective tangent lines.
When two variables are related by an equation their derivatives are also related.
Learn to identify the properties of a function, its derivative, and its second derivative from the graph of the second derivative.
Maximize the area of a rectangle inscribed in an ellipse or part of an ellipse.
Derive the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus by computing the derivative of the area under the graph of a function.
Practice computing integrals by the method of substitution.
Visualize a surface of revolution and compute the surface area.
Compute the force and work required to stretch a spring.
Identify the direction field of a differential equation.
Practice computing the sum of a geometric series.
Practice identifying a quadratic surface from its graph. Optional: Get out your 3D stereo glasses.
Find the tangent plane to a surface defined as the level surface of a function.
