A mathlet to explore approximation of the definite integral by Riemann sums
The Sampler software simulates samples from a wide variety of populations in a manner that is ideal for classroom presentations. The software is written in Java and runs within your web browser.

An article on the use of technology to stimulate mathematical thinking even by the least likely students

This Java applet consists of a game with three concentric wheels onto which the students place three copies of the numbers 0 through 6. The wheels are spun and payoffs are made for sums of 7 and 11. Probability and expected value questions are explored.
This mathlet simulates a predator-prey system of foxes and rabbits over time.
This Flash Forum article consists of two components: an applet that provides a gallery of visually compelling parametric families, and a general parametric families plotter.
This applet graphs polynomials of degree four or less, and it automatically chooses a viewing window that shows the significant features of the graph.
A preparatory module for problem-solving in physics and calculus that covers systems of units, dimensional analysis, significant figures, estimation, and orders of magnitude
In this article we examine several specific geometric phenomena in Euclidean space and calculate the asymptotics as the dimension gets large.
