# Using Javascript for Interactive Examples

Here are a few demos of ways one might use javascript to make interactive examples for students to play with. The hope is that students would gain insight into concepts by seeing graphical demonstrations of how things change as parameters change - how one parameter relates to another, how the shape of a curve depends not only on those paramters but also on others that might be fixed, and so on.

With the advent of HTML5, Javascript is now ready for prime time
for mathematical applications. There are
new Javascript demos
illustrating how we might use interactive web objects to
help students learn Calculus.
