Convergence and continuity of a function
This applet illustrates the εδ definitions of the limit and continuity of a function. It can be used to investigate (non)convergence or (dis)continuity of real functions, including the Dirichlet everywhere discontinuous function and variants.

Parametric curves
This applet plots and traces a parametric curve, given as a vector function in R2.

Two parametric curves
This applet plots two parametric curves simultaneously. It can be used to explore whether two particles collide.
