One of a series of reports on the status of tools for rendering mathematical symbols and formulas in web pages.
This collection of mathlets comprise a companion for modeling assignments (primarily for calculus) designed to give students hands-on experience describing motion as a combination of basic functions.
This applet supplements the authors' "Gutter Problem" material, but can be used to generally study properties and forms of quadratic functions, both analytically and graphically.
This article examines the dynamic geometry package GeoGebra from the point of view of Euclidean Constructions.

A review of Tom Leathrum's "Mathlets: Java Applets for Math Explorations"

The curve traced out on a baseball by its seam has many symmetries. This article explores the class of closed spherical curves with the same symmetries, which we call generalized baseball curves.

Excel Simulations and Tools for Exploratory, Experiential Mathematics (ESTEEM) is a project of the members of the BioQuest Curriculum Consortium.
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 is a module for use in differential or integral calculus. It looks at a differential equation model for world population growth.
Three applets allow you to interact with the puzzle described in the April 2009 Mathematics Magazine article by Alex Fink and Richard Guy.
