PARTIAL DERIVATIVE GEOMETRICALLY GALLERY

The following is a small gallery of demos for illustrating partial derivatives geometrically. These animations can be used by instructors in a classroom setting or by students to aid in acquiring a visualization background for partial derivatives. Two file formats, gif and Quicktime are available.

  1. The gif animations should run on most systems and the file sizes are relatively small. 

  2. The Quicktime animations require the QuickTime Player (version 6) which is a free download available by clicking here; these file are also small.

  3. The collection of animations in gif and mov format can be downloaded; see the zipped download category at the bottom of the following table.
