This is an article about the contents and use of the Duke Connected Curriculum Project interactive mathematics materials.

This gallery of images and animations shows many examples of how the POVray ray-tracing software can be used to display examples in three-dimensional geometry.

Osslets (open source, sharable mathlets) are free and flexible interactive components you can easily add to your Web pages. The collection includes ready-to-use curriculum units.

Update from the Editor and welcome to the "new" JOMA
This dynamic Java applet developed with support from the NSF (Dynamic Visualization Tools for Multivariable Calculus, DUE-CCLI Grant #0736968)) allows the user to simultaneously graph multiple 3D surfaces, space curves, parametric surfaces, vector fields, contour plots, and more in a freely rotatable 3D plot. This tool is intended as a dynamic visualization and exploration environment for multivariable calculus. Use it to illustrate the geometric relationships of many of the concepts of multivariable calculus, including dot and cross products, velocity and acceleration vectors for motion in the plane and in space, the TNB-frame, the osculating circle and curvature, surfaces, contour plots and level surfaces, partial derivatives, gradient vectors and gradient fields, Lagrange multiplier optimization, double integrals as volume, defining the limits of integration for double and triple integrals, parametric surfaces, vector fields, line integrals, and more. See the corresponding web page for documentation and a list of guided explorations developed for students to use with this exploration applet.
This ESTEEM module in the Biometrics Category leads the user through several different methodologies for applying Bayesian probabilities to real life examples and problems.
n this note, we describe our policy on a number of basic issues related to writing style, reference style, and the format of JOMA articles.

This module uses a small sample of the applets in the Mathlets package together to explore exponential functions and their derivatives in depth.

Useful for teaching as well as artistic endeavors, this applet allows the user to build a "seed" for a recursive process that constructs complex and fascinating fractal images.
