Events in our world are often modeled with differential equations. This article develops numerical solvers for ODEs. Interactive applets explore topics including slope fields and numerically solving definite integrals and differential equations.

This utility uses the free Flash player plug-in resident in most browsers to provide the student with interactive examples and practice problems to aid in learning about spherical coordinates.
A module intended to introduce the use of mathematical models in population dynamics from a biological perspective and to give substance to an elementary differential equations course
A welcome message from MAA's Director of Publications & Electronic Services

This paper uses graphics and animations to illustrate how to construct root and weight diagrams for Lie algebras, and how the root and weight diagrams can be used to identify subalgebras.

A Biological ESTEEM module from the Ecology Category. This worksheet compares user-input growth data with predictions under linear, exponential, and logistic models of growth.
This is a review of the software program Live Math.

This tutorial shows the details of composing the POV-Ray code necessary to generate the image of a dodecahedron, and to animate rotating the dodecahedron.

Part of the MathDL OSSLET Collection, this flexible and easily-used applet can be used to investigate and animate up to three functions involving up to four parameters.
This paper describes a Flash-based OSSLET that we have used at the United States Military Academy with first year calculus students as a vehicle for motivating vectors, matrices, and linear and affine transformations.
