Title: VRML Calculus
Url: http://www.calculus.net/vrml/
Creator: Curtis, Robert R.

Wayand, Lee
Publisher: calculus.net
Description: This website applies virtual reality to calculus in order to illustrate mathematical concepts more clearly to students. While many courses utilize computers via computer algebra systems and graphing tools to investigate visually the geometry of curves and surfaces in 3-space, Virtual Reality/VRML holds many possibilities for extending the visual investigation experience. Use this website to apply Calculus to the virtual world and experience Calculus at work. Students can create 3D situations using mathematical equations. Free plug-ins are required in order to see the full page.
