Description: 
We present two versions of a 3D grapher that graphs a parametric surface defined in spherical coordinates. The user enters parametric formulas for the theta, phi, and rho coordinates and the applet draws the corresponding surface in 3D. The surface can be rotated in real time by the user and its opacity can be changed. The second version of the grapher is much older and slower as it is written in AS1, but it has a few practice problems that might be of interest.
