Quality Guidelines for Mathlets

In this section we discuss some basic guidelines for the design of online materials. They are both useful when you create your own materials and when you evaluate existing materials on the Internet. First, we present several design principles of multimedia learning (Clark & Mayer 2003) relevant for mathlets. Then we provide specific guidelines concerning the creation of dynamic worksheets with GeoGebra that are based on experiences from our work with teachers in the NSF math and science partnership project of Florida Atlantic University and Broward County Schools.
