A module to study turns at high speed, where frictional effects are not sufficient to maintain circular motion

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 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).
This mathlet provides an innovative tool that allows the user to sketch a function with the mouse in order to examine some common issues and misconceptions about the average value of a function.
This is an article about the contents and use of the Duke Connected Curriculum Project interactive mathematics materials.

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.

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."
An article about the process of producing a computer software system for mathematical research or instruction
Update from the Editor and welcome to the "new" JOMA
This Law-of-Large-Numbers applet and supporting activities is developed as part of the Statistics Online Computational Resource (SOCR).
