This mathlet provides an innovative tool that allows the user to sketch a function with the mouse in order to examine some common issues and misconceptions about the average value of a function.
This is an article about the contents and use of the Duke Connected Curriculum Project interactive mathematics materials.
This dynamic Java applet developed with support from the NSF (Dynamic Visualization Tools for Multivariable Calculus, DUE-CCLI Grant #0736968)) allows the user to simultaneously graph multiple 3D surfaces, space curves, parametric surfaces, vector fields, contour plots, and more in a freely rotatable 3D plot. This tool is intended as a dynamic visualization and exploration environment for multivariable calculus. Use it to illustrate the geometric relationships of many of the concepts of multivariable calculus, including dot and cross products, velocity and acceleration vectors for motion in the plane and in space, the TNB-frame, the osculating circle and curvature, surfaces, contour plots and level surfaces, partial derivatives, gradient vectors and gradient fields, Lagrange multiplier optimization, double integrals as volume, defining the limits of integration for double and triple integrals, parametric surfaces, vector fields, line integrals, and more. See the corresponding web page for documentation and a list of guided explorations developed for students to use with this exploration applet.
This ESTEEM module in the Biometrics Category leads the user through several different methodologies for applying Bayesian probabilities to real life examples and problems.
An article about the process of producing a computer software system for mathematical research or instruction
Update from the Editor and welcome to the "new" JOMA
A collection of mathematics applets with full documentation and source code for beginning users of Adobe Flash. This collection is part of the MathDL Flash Forum.
These Java applets allow students to explore three classic probability problems: (1) the Birthday Problem, (2) the Poker Problem, and (3) the Buffon Needle problem.
An interactive and visually engaging mathlet for exploring different types of convergence of sequences and series of functions.
This mathlet demonstrates limits visually by showing values for f(x) as x approaches a given constant c.
