    Fantastic app! I am going to use this for the linearization topic area in my control systems design class.

    Isthere a way for students to add their own input i.e. an equation of their choice or even to modify the current library?

    Excellent tool for teaching, control and mathematics!

    Mark - We are not trying to be Matlab. Rather than allow equation input, we work to provide maximally revealing examples and then make them appear as attractive as possible. On the other hand if you have other examples in mind, let me know! Also, we are working towards making the javascript publicly available, at which point it's not hard to add menu items.
