This note introduces a new wiki devoted to "Better Practices for Presenting Mathematics on the Web." This wiki is an outgrowth of a workshop with the same name held July 15-21, 2007 in Washington, DC.

Learn to produce coastlines in 2D and mountains in 2D and 3D by adapting ideas related to the construction of fractals. Introductory mathematical issues in random number generation are discussed. Java applications allow

interactive exploration.

Let binary integer linear programming solve Sudoku puzzles and variations on the game for you. Also, learn to prove theorems regarding puzzle creation. Java applets allow for interactive exploration, and exercises and challenge problems are included.

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 collection of resources is designed to supplement a modern algebra course. They are designed to help students visualize many of the important concepts from a first semester undergraduate abstract algebra course.

This collection of pdf files use the PascGalois software for guided explorations in the context of Number Theory course.

This collection of pdf files consists of fully developed lesson plans for using Pascal's Triangle and the PascGalois software for a standard course in Mathematics of Elementary Education.

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.

The "area function" is often discussed as part of an introduction to the definite integral. This applet provides an innovative approach to producing functions drawn with a mouse in the context of an exploration/demonstration of the area function.
