Dr Richard Morris

Interactive geometry programs, mathematical programming and mathematics tuition.

Online Curve and Surface programs

SingSurf the full desktop java program, allowing complex 2 and 3 dimensional models from singularity theory and differential geometry to me constructed. For example it can calculate the principle directions, ridges, and focal surfaces of parametrised surface, or calculate the symmetry sets of plane curve.


A Java library for parsing, evaluating mathematical equations.

Core Jep
Jep is a small fast mathematical parsing and evaluation library. It suports various datatype including, BigDecimals, strings and complex number and has a wide rang of built in functions. It is highly customizable allow diferent syntaxes for equations. I am co-developer and its available from
Jep Extensions
Jep Extensions is a set of extensions to Jep which add symbolic operations, fast evaluation, a type system allowing evaluation using matrices and rational numbers, limited structured programing and conversion to MathML.
GWT Jep is a javascript version of the core Jep library using the Google Web Toolkit.
This simple calculator is made using Jep/GWTJep

More extensive examples can be found in Jep Console, Extensions Console and the plotting apps to the left.

Mathematics and Science tuition

Interested in private mathematics tuition in south-east Cornwall? I offer tuition at all ages and all levels with an emphasis on engaging the student and exciting the students:

My son has just finished his GCSEs and I had a fantastic tutor, Richard Morris, who taught him for 1.5 hours per week for about 12 wks before his exams. From really disliking maths he now really loves it and found his exam straightforward. - Di Baker MentOrg

Reciently I've been working with Home Educated children teaching interactive science leasons which are hopefully a bit more fun than school. Home Ed Science Club.
