The dihedral group D8 (sometimes called D4), the group of symmetries of the square, is one of the simplest finite groups. In these three mathlets, we will explore different aspects of this symmetry group to get a better understanding of its structure.

This article highlights several new modules in the ESTEEM collection maintained by the BioQuest Curriculum Consortium.
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.
An interactive and visually engaging mathlet for exploring different types of convergence of sequences and series of functions.
This mathlet demonstrates limits visually by showing values for f(x) as x approaches a given constant c.
This Flash Forum article consists of two components: an applet that provides a gallery of visually compelling parametric families, and a general parametric families plotter.
This applet graphs polynomials of degree four or less, and it automatically chooses a viewing window that shows the significant features of the graph.
