Welcome message from the first Mathlets Editor
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.
This applet supplements the authors' "Gutter Problem" material, but can be used to generally study properties and forms of quadratic functions, both analytically and graphically.
A module to introduce students visually (in two dimensions) to iterative methods for solving systems of linear equations
The editor's welcome to the first issue of JOMA

The curve traced out on a baseball by its seam has many symmetries. This article explores the class of closed spherical curves with the same symmetries, which we call generalized baseball curves.

This utility uses the free Flash player plug-in resident in most browsers to allow the user to plot parametrically defined surfaces in cylindrical coordinates. Many examples and directed exercises are included.
