Created by the 3D-XplorMath Consortium, an international group of mathematicians, 3D-XplorMath software is a free tool for visualizing mathematical objects and processes. Objects displayed include plane curves, space curves, surfaces, conformal maps, polyhedra, ordinary and partial differential equations, and fractals. The objects can be rotated and the parameters varied." (source: Intute)
