Thank you very much for publishing such things.

1. Using first example 2 the mapping (Abbildungsvorschrift, function
definition?) is displayed left of the y-axis instead of y-axis. Then
entering f(x) = x**2 and hitting preview the mapping is not updated.
2. Besides that the labeling always seems to be y-axis. Having the
function definition in there would be nice.
3. A default interval could be defined like 1 to 10 or so. Although we
can always define function which would not be defined there.
