A geometric laboratory.
Course Topic(s): Multivariable Calculus | Lines and Planes | Vector-Valued Functions and Velocity/Acceleration | Properties of Curves
This is a collection of visualizations of parametric plane curves and space curves and their properties: secant, tangent, curvature, osculating plane, osculating circle, evolute, involute and tangential and normal acceleration. All have a zoom feature. Most have sliders and animations. The 3D graphs can be rotated. They would be very useful as lecture demonstrations.
