Chemical Graph theory is used to model physical properties of molecules called alkanes. Java applets allow for interactive exploration of molecules. A student project and discussion of its application are included, along with spreadsheets of model data.

This article explores how mathematical techniques, digital images, and dynamic geometry software can be used to analyze a real-world situation originating from poultry science. The topic is mathematical modeling of the shape of an egg, where the underlying question is: What is the volume and surface area of a hen's egg?"

This Flash Forum entry provides instructions and source code for a simple 3D plotter using PaperVision3D in Flex. The basis of the applet is ActionScript 3. The tutorial is composed of two videos and links to supporting files.

This interactive matching game uses Flash to bring to life the standard "reform calculus" problem of matching graphs of function and their (first and second) derivatives.

This collection of pdf files consists of fully developed lesson plans for using Pascal's Triangle and the PascGalois software for a standard course in Mathematics of Elementary Education.
This collection of pdf files use the PascGalois software for guided explorations in the context of Number Theory course.

These are designed as supplements to a modern algebra course. They are designed to help students visualize many of the important concepts from a first semester undergraduate abstract algebra course.

This collection of K-12 resources from the Wolfram Demonstrations Project brings computational exploration to the widest possible audience using use open source material that utilizes the free Mathematica Player.
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.
The Flash Forum resource shows velocity and acceleration vectors for an arbitrary parametric curve in space, and provides built in examples. Flash source code is provided.
