Editor's Note: This file was selected as MATLAB Central Pick of the Week

Teaching Calculus with Matlab (TCM) provides a collection of interactive demos which illustrate fundamental topics in calculus. They can be used by lecturers in classrooms to explain basic principles, but also by students at home to deepen their understanding by exploring pre- and self-defined examples.
TCM is an ongoing project so that the set of demos will grow steadily in the near future. Currently, the following topics are covered:
* Newton's Method
* Mean Value Theorem
* Rational Function Analysis
* Steepest Descent
* Derivative and Tangent
* Polynomial Interpolation
* Taylor Approximation
* Tangent Plane
* Fixed Point Iteration
* Real Fourier Series
* Riemann Integral
* Critical Points of Bivariate Polynomials
* Global Extrema of Bivariate Polynomials on a Rectangle
* Constrained Minimization of a Polynomial
* Linear Programming
Installing the AutoDiff toolbox is recommended for ease of use, but not mandatory.
