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 site consists of a group of interactive Flash movies designed to teach introductory statistics students how to use their calculators so that class time can be spent focusing on concepts.
This collection of animations, embedded within the html document in gif and quicktime formats, illustrate computation of volumes via integration for first or second semester calculus students.
This module, based on Mathwright Microworld technology, allows linear algebra students to visualize linear transformations of the form Ax = y, where A is a 2 by 2 matrix.
This module, based on Mathwright Microworld technology, provides a simple row reduction calculator to investigate properties of systems of equations or matrices over the rationals.
This Mathwright Microworld allows a student to look at systems of linear equations as (1) simultaneous linear equations, (2) vector equations, and (3) matrix equations.
A mathematical model for the number of subscribers to two competing cable TV companies is presented. An applet is included, allowing the user to experiment with the model.
This applet, designed as a limited computer algebra system, allows the user to evaluate mathematical expressions, including those of interest in a calculus class.
This straightforward Java applet parses statements from propositional logic and displays their truth tables in a format consistent with most discrete math texts.
Gauss-Kronrod Integration is an adaptation of Gaussian quadrature used on some graphing calculators. This Java applet outlines the mathematical computations involved and visually demonstrates the process the calculator uses to evaluate the integral.
