Zoom in on the graph of y=b^x and vary b to make it have slope 1 at x=0.

[Run the Applet]
Note:  This applet uses a farily recent version of Java. As many browsers are not yet up to date, it is set up to use
         Sun's Plug-in for Java (and will prompt you with how to install it if you don't already have it).

Note to Students and Teachers:
This applet gives an experimental method of determining the number e.
More properties of exponential functions and logarithms can be explored in our on-line lab.
Links to on-line material from other sources are included on our information and resource pages.

Note to Developers: The applet linked to above was built with the new GeX component library.  The code was written 'by hand' but could easily have been produced in a gui RAD environment.
