Graphing a parametric surface in rectangular coordinates
- Download the Flash player
file surf_graph_rectan.swf and surf_graph_rectan.html to a subdirectory (a.k.a., folder) on your website. Click on the second of these files to see what the applet will look like. You will also need a copy of the helper file AC_RunActiveContent.js in each subdirectory containing a Flash applet.
- Edit the file rectangular.xml to customize the gallery of examples. Look here to see an explanation of the various choices you have.
- Save your changes in the file called rectangular .xml (capitalization
matters!) in the same subdirectory where you put the files in step #1.
- Direct users to http://[yourdomain/yoursubdirectory]/surf_graph_rectan.html, and they will find your version of the applet.
