Author:Université de Nice - Sophia Antipolis
Description: Interactive mathematical applications, also available in French, with documentation. The server's exercises and programs are designed to find a polynomial with given values; find the Taylor expansion of a function; find a polynomial from its curve; given function and epsilon, find delta (on the definition of continuity); and find the root of a function by successive tests. Mathematical tools will: expand a real number into a continued fraction; factor integers, rational numbers, polynomials, and rational fractions; calculate one-variable functions (Integrals, limits, roots...); calculate determinant, inverse, eigenvectors... matrices; and solve linear systems, including systems with parameters. Also a visual exercise on the definition of maps (Javascript), exercises on minima/maxima, and a mathematical puzzle based on finite fields. These materials could be useful in a U.S. pre-calculus course.
