This stand-alone Shockwave program simulates bombs falling on a city via two methods (rudimentary guidance system versus uniformly random), and students are asked to apply data analysis to determine which simulation method is which.
An extended module for students to explore the linear algebra concepts, especially the singular value decomposition, behind modern search engines
In this applet, a user fills in a grid to create a distribution of numbers. The applet displays the size of the standard deviation and the position of the mean in the distribution. An activity is provided to facilitate the use of the applet to investigate standard deviation.
A Developer's Area column on Java for those coming from a teaching background who seek programming advice and those with a software development background who seek to develop an item of value to the teaching and learning communities.
A Biological ESTEEM module in the Genetics Category. This workbook performs six-frame translation on a short user-input nucleotide sequence and highlights the position of stop codons.
This suite of five interactive applets (written with GeoGebra) allows exploration of definitions and theorems commonly presented in first-year analysis courses. Topics include sequence convergence, continuity at a point, the Mean Value theorem, Taylor series, and Riemann sums. Included with each applet is a pair of activities: one for becoming comfortable using the applet, and one for using the applet to explore the associated topic in depth.
This is the second in a series of Developers' Area articles on writing Java applets.
A Biological ESTEEM module in the Epidemiology Category. This worksheet implements an SIR (Susceptible/ Infected/ Resistant) model of epidemiology for vector-borne diseases.
This paper describes a Flash-based OSSLET that we have used at the United States Military Academy with first year calculus students as a vehicle for motivating vectors, matrices, and linear and affine transformations.
A collection of GeoGebra applets and activities for exploring the properties of reflections, rotations, translations and glide reflections in the plane.
