If you have Sketchpad, take a look at either of the resources below. Both let
you create and view wireframes of solids of revolution, animate to form
individual disks and shells, change the function being rotated, and so
forth.
Exploring Calculus with The Geometer's Sketchpad: see Aroundx.gsp and
Aroundy.gsp, both in the supplementary material on the CD
