This applet performs traditional elementary row operations keeping track of the entire process. It also allows fraction, integer, or decimal entries and preserves these types throughout the row reduction process.
This article provides Flash files that will deliver a quiz made up of multiple choice and multiple answer questions that the instructor can create in a simple text file. No knowledge for Flash or programming required!
This interactive, browser-based game provides students with a great activity for the "reform calculus" problem of finding "function-derivative pairs" based only on graphs. Several variations are available.
This article explores the strategies of timid play and bold play in the game of red and black
These applets provide interactive student activities to make connections between the graphical and analytical interpretation of "completing the square" and writing the equation of a parabola in general and standard form.
This Java applet plots up to 10 functions simultaneously with zoom and trace features. It can be used to study properties of functions or approximate solutions to equations. The syntax for entering the functions is given on the accompanying web page.
This Java applet allows the user to experiment with Riemann sums. It can also be used to approximate definite integrals or find upper and lower bounds to the exact value of a definite integral, using Riemann sums.
This site uses LiveMath (link to the free plugin is included) to allow the user to explore mathematical questions about the equal-arm balance.
This simple Javascript-enhanced web page leads students on an exploration of the "Josephus Problem," a classic problem of recreational mathematics involving the elimination of people arranged in a circle.
This set of four pages leads students through an introduction to standard set theory notation and the use of Venn diagrams. Java applets are used to give students random questions to which they respond with a graphical (point and click) interface.
