An article on the use of technology to stimulate mathematical thinking even by the least likely students

This mathlet simulates a predator-prey system of foxes and rabbits over time.
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.
These Java applets allow students to explore three classic probability problems: (1) the Birthday Problem, (2) the Poker Problem, and (3) the Buffon Needle problem.
A preparatory module for problem-solving in physics and calculus that covers systems of units, dimensional analysis, significant figures, estimation, and orders of magnitude

Events in our world are often modeled with differential equations. This article develops numerical solvers for ODEs. Interactive applets explore topics including slope fields and numerically solving definite integrals and differential equations.

This utility uses the free Flash player plug-in resident in most browsers to provide the student with interactive examples and practice problems to aid in learning about spherical coordinates.
In this article we examine several specific geometric phenomena in Euclidean space and calculate the asymptotics as the dimension gets large.

A Developers' Area article to assist college math instructors to write their own applets.

This paper uses graphics and animations to illustrate how to construct root and weight diagrams for Lie algebras, and how the root and weight diagrams can be used to identify subalgebras.
