jQuery UI datepicker not showing

I've tried using jQuery UI for the first time by creating a datepicker for a date field.  The datepicker didn't show up on my website and I've tried a simple webpage containing one text box and it still doesn't show.

After downloading and unzipping the jQuery UI folder from I uploaded the whole folder onto my website and pointed to each file's location as instructed (see code).  I am therefore wondering if I need to upload other jQuery files in order to run JQuery UI?

Many thanks in advance for any help.
