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.
A mathlet for exploring solutions of the Transport Equation by the method of characteristics.
A Biological ESTEEM module in the Phylogenetics Category. This workbook allows students to explore evolution over space and time using published data on the invasive plant Tamarix (salt cedar).

An article on the impact of technology in the teaching and learning of mathematics courses preceding calculus.

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 mathlet to draw graphs of user-defined functions.
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."
Are you in or going to be in the market for a job? Here is a timeline for the necessary steps, with Web-based resources to assist you.
This Law-of-Large-Numbers applet and supporting activities is developed as part of the Statistics Online Computational Resource (SOCR).
This collection of animations, embedded within the html document in gif and quicktime formats, illustrate computation of volumes via integration for first or second semester calculus students.
