Uses and Examples

The following use cases and examples demonstrate CDF's capabilities. Beside CDFs which were deployed as presentation or textbook you can explore use cases which focus on CDF's interactivity.



Pearson's Calculus: Early Transcendentals received the 2011 Textbook Excellence Award for its CDF-enhanced ebook.

Text and interactive examples are composed in the same environment without needing specialized programming expertise. Readers are able to interact with mathematical concepts and interactive figures are recalculated as readers change parameters.

A sample chapter can be downloaded as PDF or CDF from the publisher Pearson Higher Education. In Pearson's "My Mathlab" project the eBook is integrated into the learning management system.
