An article describing the WWW Interactive Mathematics Server (WIMS), designed for supporting intensive mathematics work via the Internet with server-side interactivity.

This article explores how mathematical techniques, digital images, and dynamic geometry software can be used to analyze a real-world situation originating from poultry science. The topic is mathematical modeling of the shape of an egg, where the underlying question is: What is the volume and surface area of a hen's egg?"

This utility uses the free Flash player plug-in resident in most browsers to allow the user to plot 3D curves and surfaces on a customized scale and dynamically rotate the picture.
A suite of mathlets for interactive exploration of quadric surfaces
This mathlet computes Riemann sums for a user-defined function and draws a graph of the function as well as a graphical represenatation of the approximations.
opinion essays from Loci editors
A Biological ESTEEM module in the BioChemistry Category. This workbook calculates the necessary components to create a buffer solution.

An article discussing the use of technology in abstract analysis, real analysis, and geometry.

This article introduces and reviews the 'Easy Java Simulations' software environment for developing math explorations as interactive Java applets.

This article looks at several geometric, straightedge-and-compass constructions for trisecting a line segment, comparing them based on the numbers of lines or circles required for the construction.
