A screenshot of the error might help us find out what is wrong

Thanks ganesh and Stephen.

I could introduce a small delay.

Could Medium be a little harder do you think?

I could also have more difficulty levels. Beginner, Medium, Challenging, Hard, Extreme.

I have a new chess program: Chess

It uses the "Garbochess" engine for the (very strong) computer player, but there is also Easy and Medium settings.

Could you let me know how it works for you and if there are any problems.

Also try to beat it, and let me know if I have Easy, Medium and Hard well chosen.

A new Calculus page: Solids of Revolution by Disks and Washers

Let me know if you find anything I should change before I release it on the website.

Also any comments or suggestions welcome.

Frame it!

I am also trying to think how to use the mouse to interact with the drawing process.

Can you provide the settings to generate the 5 examples?

Well... I kinda just played around, took a screenshot, played some more, moved on.

I recall the first one was the ellipse preset with a "radius change" of something like 0.1.

The "three rings" had a basic setting like 80,1 80,-2 with a 3rd circle like 80,0.01 but I can't recall exactly.

Where is everyone's artwork?

New version of Spiral Artist

The "Expert" button lets you control how the radius and speed change over time.
Radius changes by a factor of (1+change/1000) and can make nice effects
Speed changes by adding change/1000 but I haven't had luck making it do anything cool

Let me know if you have any ideas on making it better!

Post any cool art you make.

Thanks everyone!

I will check out IE (why is it always the exception?)

Let me know of any interesting functions you find!

(Also let me know of any bugs/suggestions/comments)

Thanks everyone!

I have also heard "day", so they say "day-f day-x" but that doesn't seem common.

Hi iamaditya, very nice to hear you like the Calculus material.

I hope to add more Calculus one day, but over the last year or so I have added some Physics pages and am now going though the site updating the graphics. As well I am working with two translators creating a Chinese version of the site!

Good work!

How would you like the solution worded? And credited?

#20 Re: Maths Is Fun - Suggestions and Comments » Gravity Freeplay » 2017-02-27 22:15:32

Maybe an all-text version of "edit" would do the job. If I get some free time I will work on it

Hi MathsIsFun,

This page looks excellent to me.  Had to cover a physics lesson once, so, instead of copying from books, I got out the Van de Graaff generator.  The effect on washed, fine hair is 'shocking!'.

Bob

Pics please smile

I should mention that!

I have read that if you are caught outdoors during lightning you should squat down, feet  together,  with head tucked in.
