A Biological ESTEEM module in the Genetics Category. This Excel workbook as two related applications, the Birthday Problem and Class Phenotypic Probabilities.
This site features three simple-to-use applets: contour diagrams, curve families, and surface of revolution. The applets are written in Java and exploit Sun Microsystems' Java OpenGL technology so they will run on Apple OS X, Microsoft Windows 2000 or above, Solaris and many common configurations of Linux.
We highlight five pages written in XHTML with links to SVG files that produce animations illustrating calculus concepts such as the sign of the derivative, inflection points, conic sections, area between two curves, and multivariable functions.
This is the second in a series of Developers' Area articles on writing Java applets.
A Biological ESTEEM module in the Sequence Alignment Category. These two worksheets implement a dynamic programming algorithm for pairwise sequence alignment.
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.

Users toss a virtual coin or die to investigate the law of averages. The outcomes of multiple experiments (consisting of 10000 tosses each) can be graphed on the same plot to facilitate visualization of trends. An activity is provided to facilitate thinking about the law of averages with the applet.

A Developers' Area article on the construction and collection of quality mathlets.

This applet allows the user to see regions of integration for double integrals in rectangular or polar coordinates. The applet uses classes from the article "Flash Tools for Developers: Parametric Curves on the Plane."
This Java applet allows the user to experiment with Riemann sums. It can also be used to approximate definite integrals or find upper and lower bounds to the exact value of a definite integral, using Riemann sums.
