A Developers' Area article on reusability and its benefits, particularly with regard to Java applets.

This interactive page allows readers to construct a Kuratowski 14-Set on the real line by selecting from among ten checkboxes, each representing a given set of real numbers.

This applet encourages students to use the mathematics of the motion of a projectile to choose angle and velocity necessary to hit a roving target. The source code is available from the link within the Sharing Area of the Flash Forum.

An article about an online system for providing education and assessment for precalculus, which can substitute for routine problems given in homework and as exam questions

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.

An article about an interactive environment for viewing dynamically the geometry of elementary row operations.

This mathlet computes the center of mass (centroid) of a lamina of uniform density.
A collection of mathematics applets with full documentation and source code for beginning users of Adobe Flash. This collection is part of the MathDL Flash Forum.
